February 2012

There is an increasing demand for the management of Diabetes at the Health Centre. Patients feel that they get a comprehensive check, management here at the most optimal cost. They are willing to travel great distances, enduring a lot of discomfort to be seen by us. The Distance Fellowship in Diabetology, from CMC Vellore has helped in a better management of the patients. It is a struggle to say no to the wealthier diabetics,particularly when they say that apart from the Health Centre they have no recourse to anyone for the appropriate management and treatment of this chronic condition and that they have to go to either Bengaluru or Tirupathi for this condition.
One wonders why there are so many diabetics and it is only showing an ever increasing trend.
