We provide treatment, prevention and education in endocrine diseases.
Treatment is administered through outpatient services in the Diabetes Clinic and Endocrine Clinic. Diabetes is a chronic disease that requires continuing medical care and self management.
There are many issues beyond good blood sugar control that need to be addressed. Comprehensive care for diabetic patients is provided through our team of diabetologist, nurse educator, dietician, ophthalmologist, podiatrist and physiotherapist. Other than monitoring blood sugars, weight, blood pressure, cholesterol, and adverse effects of drug therapy, we also have a programme to screen the feet, eyes and kidneys for complications of diabetes.
We manage a whole spectrum of endocrine and metabolic diseases. As most endocrine disorders are chronic disorders, we integrate care by facilitating step-down care or through co-management with the referring primary care physicians when appropriate.
