Outreach program aims to help diabetes patients manage their care

Vernon “Shorty” Whetzel hadn’t been feeling well for a couple of days, but when he suddenly began to slur words and couldn’t walk, his wife, Lois, called 911. They both feared Vernon had a stroke because his sister died of a stroke at the young age of 30. In the ambulance on their way to Sentara RMH’s Emergency Department, the EMTs tested Vernon, who is 65, for high blood glucose, called hyperglycemia. His reading was far above normal.
