Dr. Mohan's Diabetes Management App Launch

We are happy to inform you that, we have developed a special Diabetes Management App to help patients and their family members to learn the skills to manage diabetes better.
This app will coach patients through a structured 16-week curriculum to help them cope with the behavioral and emotional aspects of managing Diabetes and learn new skills to make sustainable lifestyle changes. The curriculum comprises of interactive multimedia, quizzes and exclusive video content of Dr. V. Mohan. It will also allow patients to monitor vital information such as glucose and Hba1c levels, diet, physical activity steps, and weight, which are synced real-time with Dr. Mohan’s electronic medical record (EMR) system. Insights gathered from this information will be utilized by Dr. Mohan’s Care Team to provide more proactive and personalized care to patients.

Diabetes Destination

Recent Study India is Witnessing alarming rate of conversion – DIABETES DESTINATION

Yet another milestone achievement by Dr. Mohan's Diabetes Specialities Centre

A 3 month old infant, Baby Ivana Das, an insulin dependent, was brought to Dr. Mohan’s Diabetes Specialities Centre and was diagnosed with Neonatal Diabetes.
She was successfully treated after genetic analysis by the team of experts at Dr. Mohan’s Diabetes Specialities Centre.

Addressing the media, Dr. Mohan, Chairman & Chief Diabetologist, Dr. Mohan’s Diabetes Specialities Centre informed that “Neonatal diabetes is a rare form of diabetes and is totally different from Type 1 (juvenile-onset, or insulin-dependent) diabetes and type 2 (adult-onset, or non-insulin dependent) diabetes. Making an accurate diagnosis of neonatal diabetes is important since many of these children can be managed with oral diabetes tables, than with insulin”.

With the right diagnosis and proper treatment protocols, the baby is now insulin independent and can continue with just tablets, which is a miraculous happening in her life. We wish her a healthy and happy years of long life!

Insulin Pump Center Launch

Dr.Mohan’s Diabetes Specialities Centre in collaboration with Medtronic’s is proud to announce the launch of Insulin Pump Centre for improved management of Diabetes. We are certain that this is only the beginning of more scientific engagements in future.

A boon to Insulin dependent Diabetics!

Dr. Mohan’s Diabetes Specialities Centre launches Insulin Pump Clinic

Insulin Pump therapy has come as yet another innovation in the field of Diabetes treatments, especially for the patients who are Insulin dependents and who need multiple insulin doses everyday.

Dr. Mohan’s Diabetes Specialities Centre (DMDSC) has today added the ‘Insulin Pump Clinic’ facility in it’s Gopalapuram Centre in Chennai.

Dedicating the facility, Dr. V. Mohan, Chairman, DMDSC said, “an insulin pump is a small device about the size of a small cell phone that is worn externally and can be discreetly clipped to your belt, slipped into a pocket, or hidden under your clothes. It delivers precise doses of rapid-acting insulin to closely match your body’s needs”.

“Small amounts of insulin delivered continuously (24/7) for normal functions of the body (not including food). The programmed rate is determined by our specialists based on the patient’s Diabetes condition. Insulin pumps have bolus calculators that help patients to calculate their bolus amount based on settings that are fixed by our specialists”, he added.

During a live interaction with patients on the occasion, Dr. V. Mohan further explained, “since the insulin pump uses only more predictable rapid-acting insulin, patients need not follow a strict schedule for eating, activity, and insulin injections. They have the freedom of eating only when hungry, delaying a meal if required or even broadening the food choices”.

“With insulin pump therapy, patients will have to change their infusion set only a few times per month unlike conventional multiple daily injections”, he added.

Dr. R. M. Anjana, Joint Managing Director further explained “we have introduced ‘Try Before You Buy’ (TBYB) scheme for the patients who want to try the pump and get used to it before actually buying one. The insulin pumps are available for a minimum monthly rent under this scheme, without any caution deposit, which we introduce in the interest of the patients. Patients can decide after a month or two of trial use, whether they want to buy the pump or not.”

With proper insulin pump use, patients can be four times more likely to achieve their target A1C and potentially reduce their low blood sugar reactions by 84%. Since insulin pump therapy can help achieve better control, it can reduce long-term complications of diabetes such as eye, heart, kidney, and nerve damage.
