Standing on Two Feet Again
Paul came to OLE Health dealing with terrible sores on his feet that were affecting his ability to work at his masonry job. Through his primary care provider, Paul learned that the sores were a result of his diabetes and was referred to a diabetes counselor.
As Paul came in regularly for wound care, he was able to report how suggested exercise and diet management had been helping his blood sugar stay in a healthy range. Through community partners, he was able to get diabetic work boots for a reduced cost and return to work.
