What is Diabetes?

Also known as a silent killer, Diabetes is a disorder that can lead to several life-threatening complications. Here is a side of India which we must acquaint ourselves with that India is among the top three countries in the world with the highest diabetic population. At Neotia Mediplus OPD & Diagnostics Clinic, we repeatedly reinforce that Diabetes is a disorder and not a disease. It is a condition that is very much in our control to manage. It is the core belief that drives our team of highly skilled and experienced diabetologists.

What is Diabetology?

Diabetology is the speciality branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diabetes. Diabetes is a condition wherein glucose does not reach the cells, thus making them starve for energy. It could be due to very low levels of insulin in the blood or reduced ability of the body to use insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is secreted by the pancreas, which in turn, helps our cells absorb glucose. Consistent high levels of blood sugar could lead to serious complications such as heart, eye, foot or kidney diseases.

At Neotia Mediplus OPD & Diagnostics Clinic, we aim to make diabetes ‘disease-free' by delivering the best outcomes through a patient-centric care model which combines comprehensive clinical care with sustained lifestyle management and some behavioural changes in the individual.

What is the first step?

At our Diabetology Centre, the first step is to understand the type of diabetes that has affected the individual. There are four types of diabetes, each having their course of management. The symptoms and treatment measures of each type of diabetes are detailed below:
