BJC Convenient Cares Provide Low Cost, After-Hours Care

Our BJC Medical Group and Boone Medical Group convenient care and weekend clinic locations see a variety of injuries and illnesses every day. From the typical cough, cold and flu symptoms that are rampant this time of year to more serious conditions, our providers are equipped with knowledge and resources to provide care.

Our providers are committed to providing excellent and timely care for their patients. Even when a patient walked into one of our clinics when it was closing for the day, a provider took the time to listen and understand the patient’s needs. This provider started IV fluids and medications to treat the woman’s symptoms and gave the patient’s young daughter a coloring book to put the patient at ease. The provider then stayed with the patient until she was feeling better and able to make it to the pharmacy.

November is National Diabetes Awareness Month

By Tambra Sellers, RN

According to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, diabetes affects approximately 30 million people nationwide. It is a chronic disease in which blood glucose (sugar) levels are above normal.

In general, people with diabetes have problems converting food to energy. There are two types of diabetes, Type 1 and Type 2. Type 1 diabetes, formally called juvenile diabetes, is a disease of the immune system, the body’s system for fighting infection. With this type of diabetes the insulin-producing cells (beta cells) are attacked by the immune system preventing the pancreas from being able to produce insulin. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of the disease and is common in adults, but can occur at any age.
