If you have type 1, type 2 or gestational diabetes, the Mankato Clinic Diabetes Care Center offers comprehensive care to help you successfully manage diabetes. We treat you, the whole person, not the condition. Our team of specialized healthcare professionals are patient-centered and work with you and your primary care provider to best treat and manage your diabetes. 

If you have a new diabetes diagnosis, a change in your treatment plan or a physical or emotional change in your life, talk with your primary care proveder to be referred to the Diabetes Care Center.
