Health Care Quality Matters is sponsored by Healthy Memphis Common Table, a regional collaborative in Western Tennessee. Our work includes providing public reports to help you better understand the quality of health care in your community. In the fall of 2012, we will provide additional ratings for other communities in Tennessee.

What will these ratings tell me about the Quality of Health Care?

These ratings will tell you how hospitals, medical offices and physicians compare in the care they provide. Some hospitals, medical offices and physicians provide better care than others.

How can I get more information about these ratings?

Look for within the reports, and click for helpful information about the topic.
Still have questions about the ratings? Call Healthy Memphis Common Table at 901-800-5116.

Diabetes Care by Medical Offices

-What is diabetes?

Diabetes [dahy-uh-bee-tis, -teez] is a disease that keeps your body from making or using insulin. Insulin is a hormone made by your pancreas. Insulin helps turn the food you eat into energy your body needs.

When you have diabetes, your body doesn't change food into energy as well as it should. Sugar builds up in your blood. If blood sugar stays too high, it can slowly cause damage to your heart, eyes, kidneys, and feet. When diabetes is not controlled for long periods of time, it can lead to heart disease, blindness, kidney failure and loss of fingers, toes, hands or feet.

There are two types of diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is when the body does not produce enough insulin. Type 1 diabetes usually is first diagnosed during childhood. Type 2 diabetes is when the body does not respond as it should to insulin. Both adults and children can get type 2 diabetes.
