Diabetology is the domain of medicine involving the study of diabetes, its diagnosis, and treatment. Diabetes is a rampant chronic disorder typified by high blood sugar levels in the body owing to impeded insulin activity, obstructed glucose metabolism, and malfunctioning of the pancreas. There exist three distinct types of diabetes-type 1 diabetes mellitus, type 2 diabetes mellitus, and gestational diabetes.
According to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), as of 2019, there were more than 77 million diabetics in India, giving the nation the dubious distinction of having the second-highest number of diabetics globally, trailing only behind China, which had the highest figure of over 116 million people with diabetes. This number is expected to rise to alarming proportions by the year 2030, as projected by leading medical experts, posing a considerable burden on healthcare systems as well. Diabetes is a severe lifestyle disease that can affect various systems in the body, leading to multiple health complications.
Salient Features Of Diabetes Treatment At Medway Hospitals:
At Medway Hospital's Diabetology Department, efficacious treatment strategies are adopted and customized as per the patient's health status and personal preferences to resolve the entire spectrum of diabetes-related problems.
The qualified team of doctors goes the extra mile to monitor patient's diabetic health, using specialized technology, including Ambulatory Glucose Profile (AGP)-enabled devices to track the patient's sugar levels 24 hours a day.
This technology, which only select hospitals in India use, provides valuable metrics such as average glucose, measures of variability, Time-in-Range, and predicted A1C.
It also displays the percentage of time a PWD (person with diabetes) spends in either hypoglycemic or hyperglycemic states. All this aggregate data is used to form a prognosis for each patient accordingly.
Reversing Diabetes Successfully At Medway - Novel Approach Towards Remission:
"Reverse is the new way forward". We at Medway believe and work with patients in reversing type 2 diabetes, as much evidence has been brought up in the past few years regarding diabetes reversal as a probable substitute to consider in place of traditional diabetes treatment and management.
Although the reversal may not be permanent, the Department Of Endocrinology And Diabetology, which specializes in the remission of diabetes, takes care of about 10,000 diabetic patients through various methods of diet changes and weight management.
Regular screenings of blood sugar levels are performed for all existing and new patients, and 24/7 call support is available to provide help for any diabetic-related queries.
Understanding the challenges involved in managing diabetes, the best possible treatment and care is offered to every diabetic patient at Medway Hospitals to enhance their overall health and help them lead a vastly improved quality of life.
