The Diabetes Care Center provides patients and their relatives a comprehensive education and patient-focused counselling on managing diabetes. The team is staffed by some of the country’s highly skilled and well-trained diabetes educators who teach different modules such as nature and complications of diabetes, foot care, exercises, medical nutrition therapy, insulin injection, and self-monitoring of blood glucose.
Relaunched in 2011, its Diabetes Club regularly organizes fun activities for its members during Diabetes Awareness Week, along with free lay forums to give updates on the latest techniques in the management of diabetes. Members can also take advantage of special discounts on various products for diabetes such as blood glucose kits and meal replacements, and receive exciting freebies during the event.
An interested individual can be a member of the Diabetes Club by attending any learning module of the Diabetes Care Center. All members will receive invites to free lay forums and other activities via SMS or email.
