Diabetes, Nutrition and Endocrine Center

 

Diabetes and other nutrition and endocrine-related disorders can seem like a roadblock to a “normal” life, but the staff at Affinity Health System helps you learn how to care for yourself properly. We help you regain as much freedom and control over your health as possible.  

Affinity offers medical care and self-management training for diabetes at various locations throughout the Fox Valley.

Team of Specialists

The Affinity Diabetes, Nutrition and Endocrine Center brings together a team of health care specialists including endocrinologists, advanced practice nurses, certified diabetes educators and registered dietitians, office nurses and receptionists/schedulers. 

As specialists we can find the hidden cause of your symptoms, obtain pertinent labs and treat you effectively with focused one-on-one care.

Our specialists work closely with your primary care doctor and with doctors who specialize in other areas affected by diabetes to make sure you are getting consistent quality care.

The care providers at the Affinity Diabetes, Nutrition and Endocrine Center work with the pediatric endocrinologists at the Affinity/UW Children’s Health Center in Appleton to care for children with type 1 diabetes.
