About the Clinic
Grady’s Diabetes Clinic began as an idea of Dr. John K. Davidson in the late 1960s. Dr. Davidson, an Emory attending physician, earned his PhD. under the tutelage of Dr. Charles H. Best, co–discoverer of insulin. The team expanded to include a registered dietitian, podiatrist, medical social worker, financial counselor, eye technician and pharmacist. This multidisciplinary team approach, which includes education and lifestyle changes, resulted in a significant drop in diabetes related amputations and other costly diabetes complications.

Today, the Diabetes Clinic uses that same multidisciplinary approach to teach patients to better self-manage their diabetes. Patients are evaluated by a team of nurse providers, certified diabetes educators, nutritionists, podiatrists and physician specialized in diabetes care.
In addition to management of blood glucose, the clinic monitors and treats high blood pressure and abnormal cholesterol and lipid levels. Grady’s Diabetes Clinic screens patients as recommended by the American Diabetes Association for diabetes complications and provides appropriate treatment.
