Diabetes is a health disorder affecting a large population today. Although there are specialty clinics, private clinics and government hospitals in cities around Chennai, the best ones are located in Chennai.
Today, because of sedentary lifestyle and many other factors, even children are prone to diabetes. Type 1 diabetes symptoms which must be acted upon at the earliest include excessive thirst, feeling tired, loss of weight, need to pee frequently, skin infections and genital itchiness.
If not treated properly, diabetic patients can develop complications as periodic screening of eye, foot and heart ailments are a must for those suffering from diabetes. Proper evaluation has to be done and the doctor has to prescribe oral tablets, insulin or cardio-preventive drugs if needed.
The World Diabetes Federation and the World Health Organization has recommended a test namely, HbA1C for diabetic patients once every three months. Such a test gives a 4-month blood sugar average of the patient.
This test aids in deciding whether to continue a drug or to change it. Today, most of the patients monitor their sugar levels at home or laboratories --- sometimes even without the recommendation of their doctor!India Diabetes Research Foundation,
