Diabetes management specialists at CHI St. Alexius Health take a multidisciplinary approach to address possible complications caused by diabetes. Diabetes causes unique and chronic challenges. Your medical team will work with you to suggest lifestyle changes and a personalized health management program.
In treating this chronic disease as recommended by your primary physician, patients may be encouraged to consult with an endocrinologist (physician who specializes in glands and the hormones they produce), an eye doctor, kidney specialist, wound care expert, nutritionist, diabetes educator, and other professionals.
The pancreas is a gland that produces insulin, a hormone that controls blood sugar. When the pancreas creates too little insulin, your body is resistance to insulin, or both, you may develop diabetes.
There are two main types of diabetes:
Type 1 develops when the pancreas produces little or no insulin.
Type 2 usually occurs in adulthood, but is now being diagnosed in teens and young adults because of increased obesity.
Gestational diabetes sometimes develops during pregnancy in non-diabetic women.

3D Mammography and Digital mammography at CHI St. Alexius Health can help detect breast cancer earlier using low dose x-rays to produce diagnostic images of breast tissue. With one in eight women being diagnosed with breast cancer sometime in her life, mammograms give every woman her best chance for an early and accurate diagnosis.
CHI St. Alexius is dedicated to bringing 3D mammography* to more communities than ever before. We offer a new standard of detecting breast cancer for women in Bismarck, Mandan, Minot, and Williston. 3D breast tomosynthesis - known as 3D mammography - is leading the way in the earliest detection of breast cancer. It helps doctors see breast tissue in greater depth and clarity.
We are proud to offer you the latest in breast imaging technology: wide-angle breast tomosynthesis. A wide-angle 3D mammogram offers a better view of breast tissue than a standard 3D mammogram. Our 50-degree angle, the industry's highest depth resolution, captures more detail for the highest quality 3D images. This increases diagnostic confidence enabling earlier detection.
Early Detection is Key
