    Inova Loudoun expands Diabetes Center

    While in the final stages of opening the doors of its new emergency room at its Leesburg Cornwall Campus, Inova Loudoun also opened another new center on the rebuilt campus.

    Inova Loudoun Hospital is expanding its Diabetes Center to the Inova Loudoun Medical Campus – Leesburg. The new Inova Diabetes Center is in the Jackson Building.

    The center will occupy approximately 2,100 square feet of space consisting of a large classroom, private workroom and five private offices.

    Continuous Glucose Monitoring allows diabetes patients to stay on top of their blood sugar levels. A probe with a tiny sensor is inserted just under the skin and stays there for a period of about five days, sending glucose readings every five minutes to a “beeper-like” device worn by the patient. Most major medical insurers cover CGM for Type 1 diabetes and for some cases of Type 2, according to Traci Carter, manager, Inova Diabetes Center.

    For patients who are unsure if CGM is right for them, the Diabetes Center has an initial trial period for patients to see what the technology is like. “They can borrow one of our CGMs for a week. We don’t have a fee for borrowing the CGMs, there’s just a starter fee for the probe,” Carter said. “In the future we hope to expand our services to include insulin pumps too."

    The Inova Diabetes Center – Loudoun also offers diabetes education, which is a covered benefit under Medicare and most major insurers, to help people self-manage diabetes.

    Classes include a Type 2 diabetes basics class and a gestational diabetes class.

    For more information on classes and services visit inova.org/diabetes or call 877-511-4625.

    technically this new diabetes clinic is not in the rebuilt building, but across the street from the soon-to-be torn down ER
