To provide comprehensive diabetes care from the best diabetes doctors in Dubai. We support patients and their caregivers to enable Diabetes self-management and develop individualized goals to better optimize health outcomes. We are providing Blood Sugar Remote Monitoring through Diabetes Technology.
Diabetes Mellitus is a group of metabolic disease characterised by hyperglycaemia (high blood sugar) resulting from defects in insulin secretion, insulin action, or both.
Diabetes technologies such as continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII)- Insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) play a significant part of diabetes treatment, and there have been many studies that emphasize the advantages of using these technologies.
An Insulin pump is a small computerized device. It delivers insulin under skin. There are different types of Insulin pumps which deliver insulin through a fine tube or tubeless. Pumps use only rapid acting insulin for basal and bolus requirements which will be programmed by the health provider.
Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM)
CGM is a wearable personal device for people with diabetes to measure glucose levels 24 hours a day.
The diagnostic criteria for diabetes and prediabetes are shown in below table
|A1c||5.7–6.4% (39–47 mmol/mol)||≥6.5% (48 mmol/mol)|
|Fasting plasma glucose||100–125 mg/dL (5.6–6.9mmol/L||≥126 mg/dL (7.0 mmol/L)|
|2-hour plasma glucose during 75-g OGTT||140–199 mg/dL (7.8–11.0mmol/L)||≥200 mg/dL (11.1 mmol/L)|
|Random plasma glucose||≥200 mg/dL (11.1 mmol/L)|
Adults who do not have diabetes symptoms should be screened for prediabetes and type 2 diabetes starting at age 35
Risk-based screening for Type 2 diabetes and prediabetes in Asymptomatic Children and
Adolescents in a Clinical Setting are considered as following:
Complications of diabetes include problem that develop rapidly (acute) or over time (chronic) and may affect many organ systems. these complications can dramatically impair quality of life and cause long- lasting disability if are not prevented or treated.
Keeping blood sugar, blood pressure and blood cholesterol under control will hugely help to reduce your risk of developing complications. This means going to your diabetes health checks and finding out from your diabetes healthcare team how to look after yourself between appointments. You can prevent or delay the complications of diabetes. But you need to act and it’s all about managing your diabetes well.
Keeping your HbA1c within the target range set by your healthcare team is really important for reducing your risk complications. If your blood sugar levels are rising, talk to your doctor. Your treatment may need to change to get your HbA1c back in target to avoid the complications of high blood sugar.
Strong evidence exists that obesity management can delay the progression from prediabetes to type 2 diabetes and is highly beneficial in the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Modest weight loss improves glycaemic control and reduces the need for glucose-lowering medications, and more intensive dietary energy restriction can substantially reduce A1C and fasting glucose and promote sustained diabetes remission through at least 2 years.
Metabolic surgery strongly improves glycaemic control and often leads to remission of diabetes, improved quality of life, improved CV outcomes, and reduced mortality.
Insulin – Insulin is a hormone produced in the pancreas by the islet cells, which is binding with sugar (glucose) to regulate the amount of glucose in the blood.
Pancreas – Pancreas is a glandular organ located in abdomen which produce hormones including of insulin to help food digestion.
