Valley Metabolic Clinic
Comprehensive care for patients with type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes and complications of obesity.
Welcome to the Valley Metabolic Clinic. We provide comprehensive medical assessment and treatment for adult patients with type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, fatty liver, polycystic ovarian disease, and complications of obesity. We also provide medical supervision for those wishing to engage in lifestyle interventions for their metabolic disease.
Step 1: Obtain a referral
In order to be seen in our clinic your family doctor or nurse practitioner needs to send a referral letter that should include details of your diagnosis, medical history and medications.
Upon receipt of the referral we will respond to your family doctor with an estimated time for your appointment. We often try to coordinate consultation visits with various lifestyle interventions so that we can optimize your medical care.
Our fax number is 1(815) 962-2375
Step 2: Consider lifestyle interventions
If you are living with type 2 diabetes or complications of obesity, please take time to become familiar with various lifestyle interventions prior to your consultation as there will not be time to review any of these options in detail during your consultation. There is no obligation to join any of these programs.
If you are living with type 1 diabetes, we are creating a list of resources for further education and empowerment. Coming soon!
Step 3: Preparation for your consultation
You will receive an email with a link to fill out a questionnaire within a week of your appointment.
Step 4: Your consultation
Welcome you to your clinic! You will often meet with a health professional such as a nurse or professional dietitian prior to seeing a Valley Metabolic Clinic physician. You will have a consultation with your clinician so that we have a detailed and comprehensive understanding of your history. We will focus on medical therapy adjustments as well as consider changes in movement or nutrition to help you reach your goals.
Step 5: Your journey
We will provide ongoing medical supervision and any needed monitoring for up to one year. Once we are assured you are feeling confident in your journey and or have adequate supports, your care will be transitioned back to your primary care home. For those with type 1 diabetes, we will provide ongoing support indefinitely.
