According to the World Health Organization (WHO), people with diabetes are two-three times more likely to suffer heart attacks and strokes. Over time uncontrolled blood sugar levels can damage the blood vessels.  

This is painful condition wherein high blood sugar levels are responsible for nerve damage, most often affecting the lower limbs. Infection can cause pain and numbness in the legs and feet and at its worse can even lead to amputation.

When the diabetes is not treated on time or is uncontrollable it can lead to eye problems mostly caused by damage to the blood vessels in the retina. This can lead to blindness.

People with long-term diabetes are more likely to be diagnosed with kidney failure compared to those with normal blood sugar levels. The onslaught of high blood glucose levels over time wreaks havoc on the kidney, resulting in damage.

The Diabetology department at HMH is involved in the diagnosis, care and management of patients with diabetes.

We believe that prevention measures, recognition of early signs and timely intervention go a long way in effective control and management of blood sugar levels.

The first step in our comprehensive diabetes management programme is to identify high-risk individuals (pre-diabetes), educate them on signs and symptoms, and spread awareness about prevention of complications.

Our highly-experienced doctors also give them necessary advice on lifestyle changes, diet and fitness.

Early diagnosis is important to beat diabetes and to this end our department offers effective solutions that focus on timely detection and management of the disorder and its complications.

We provide essential guidance to our patients on self-care and managing their health in the long-term.

About
Diabetology

According to the National Diabetes Survey Report released in 2019, the prevalence of diabetes in the Indian population is around 12 per cent.

Among these, the highest prevalence is seen in senior citizens within the age group of 70-79 years.

But, younger populations are also prone to developing diabetes because of sedentary lifestyle, poor diet and lack of exercise.
The more common form of diabetes is called Type 2 diabetes, which is caused because of lifestyle reasons such as obesity, high blood pressure and lack of exercise.

In Type 1 diabetes, sometimes called childhood-onset diabetes, the body is not able to produce insulin, so the patient has to take insulin every day.
