Diabetes Clinic

Metabolic Leader is a center for excellence and offers a comprehensive Diabetes Clinic to assist our patients with managing their Pre-Diabetes, Type I Diabetes, Type II Diabetes, and Gestational Diabetes, as well as other less common forms of Diabetes. Dr. Babirak is a nationally recognized Diabetes provider for more than 20 years and supervises the care of all diabetic patients whether for those who are newly diagnosed, those who have difficulty controlling their diabetes or those who need long-term care and follow up. Our Providers follow the American Diabetes Association Standards of Care for education and management starting with teaching skills patients can use to make good food choices, recommending appropriate physical activity and monitoring their blood glucose levels. These standards ensure evidence based measures to provide excellent clinical care. We offer a Certified Diabetes Educator for basic and intensive education and a Registered Dietitian for medical nutrition therapy, as well as more intensive training in advanced dietary instruction. In addition, we offer state of the art insulin pump training and continuous glucose monitoring in one convenient location.

Our Providers have been the first in Maine to receive the National Committee for Quality Assurance Diabetes Recognition Award, demonstrating our commitment to outstanding patient care which typically exceeds all national outcome measurements.

Metabolic Leader Providers are committed to working closely with Primary Care Physicians to ensure your total health. If you would like to become a patient at Metabolic Leader, please contact your primary care physician for a referral to our office. This will permit consistent and clear communication between our providers and your primary care physician resulting in the best care possible for you.
