Diabetes Management

Diabetes is a chronic condition that affects the way your body processes blood sugar (glucose). It is a major health concern worldwide, with an estimated 422 million adults living with diabetes in 2014, according to the World Health Organization. In India, it is estimated that over 70 million people live with diabetes, making it one of the most prevalent chronic diseases in the country. 

At Sterling Hospitals Ahmedabad, our diabetes management program is designed to help patients manage their diabetes effectively, prevent complications, and improve their overall health and quality of life. Our team of diabetes specialists includes  

  • Endocrinologists 
  • Dieticians 
  • Diabetes Educators  

One of the key components of our diabetes management program is personalized diet and exercise plans. We understand that managing diabetes requires a comprehensive approach that includes not just medication, but also lifestyle changes. Our dieticians work with patients to develop customized meal plans that take into account their individual needs and preferences, while also helping to regulate blood glucose levels. We also provide education on healthy eating habits, portion control, and how to read food labels. 

In addition to diet, exercise is also an important component of diabetes management. Our team of diabetes educators works with patients to develop personalized exercise plans that are safe and effective. Regular exercise not only helps to regulate blood glucose levels but also improves cardiovascular health, reduces stress, and can help with weight management. 

Medication management is also an important component of our diabetes management program. Our endocrinologists use the latest technology to monitor blood glucose levels and adjust medication as needed to ensure optimal control. We also provide education on how to administer medication correctly, how to monitor blood glucose levels at home, and how to recognize and respond to signs of hypoglycemia. 

Another important aspect of our diabetes management program is education. We believe that patient education is essential for effective diabetes management. Our diabetes educators provide education on a range of topics, including how to monitor blood glucose levels, how to administer medication, how to recognize and respond to hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia, and how to manage diabetes during pregnancy. 

Our diabetes management program also includes regular follow-up appointments to monitor progress and make adjustments to the treatment plan as needed. We believe that regular communication and feedback are critical for successful diabetes management. 

In addition to our diabetes management program, we also offer specialized care for patients with complications related to diabetes, such as  

  • Diabetic Retinopathy 
  • Neuropathy 
  • Foot Ulcers.  

Our team of specialists works together to provide comprehensive care that addresses not just the diabetes but also any related complications.

We understand that managing diabetes can be challenging, and we are here to support our patients every step of the way.
