A few months ago, a 72-year-old woman arrived in the USA from her home country in South America, where medical care was difficult to access. With numerous medical concerns, no insurance, and a lack of resources, she reached out to Waukesha Free Clinic and was evaluated by one of the volunteer physicians. Upon review of her symptoms and needs, it was determined that she had an extremely elevated blood sugar (Hemoglobin A1C + 17.6) and was risk of kidney failure and anemia, and was suffering from chronic urinary tract infections. After a few medical visits and regular continuity of care from our providers, proper laboratory testing was completed on a regular basis. With constant supervision on medical treatment plus adequate medication, her condition and her stamina improved dramatically. Soon all her lab values were stable. Even though she suffered internal organ damage from her prolonged lack of care and chronic disease condition, she is being proactive and taking full care of herself. At a recent appointment, her latest Hemoglobin A1C level was shown to have dropped to 9.7, showing a continued progress on her road to recovery!
