Medsugar completely understand the needs of people with diabetes. Our services aimed at three basic principles - Affordability, Acessible and Convenience. Medsugar strongly believes that we can make healthcare safe, accessible, and cost-effective. Our services and patient education process is the most convenient and empowering one for a quality life. We just not add life rather help patients to lead quality life.
Medsugar's uniqueness is helping diabetic patients to keep their glucose under control. Our method involves complete assessment of patients routines, age, culture, food habits and current medication. Based on the assessment, we work out a new scheme of medication to suit the patients routines, food habits and age. In our experience we learnt that treatment plans not convenient to patients leads poor blood sugar control. Hence, our approach centres around the patient convenience.
Diabetes often called as vascular diseases and also a silent killer by damaging the vital organs namely heart, neurological system, eyes, kidneys and foot. We focus and screen regularly for the involvement of organs.
Kidney failure is usually a long-term consequence of diabetes and hypertension. Prolonged diabetes say from 10 to 20 years, it has ability to make changes in the structure of blood vessels in the whole body as well as the kidneys. This results in failure of filter toxins by kidneys. A report published by the Indian CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease) Registry in 2012 estimated that diabetes and hypertension accounted for nearly 40 to 60 per cent of CKD cases.
Diabetes is also a reason for hypertension in people with diabetes. Both are co-morbid condition. Hyper tension in diabetic patients also causes micro and macro vascular complications.
Atherosclerosis is a disease in which plaque builds up inside your arteries. Arteries are blood vessels that carry oxygen-rich blood to your heart and other parts of your body. Plaque is made up of fat, cholesterol, calcium, and other substances found in the blood. Prolonged exposure to hyperglycemia is now recognized a major factor in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis in diabetes.
Diabetes has the potential to cause multiple problems to the eyes of people with diabetes. These conditions include diabetic retinopathy, diabetic macular edema, cataracts, and glaucoma. Uncontrolled diabetes, over a period of time causes poor vision and eventually blindness. Effective sugar control helps the diabetic patients from further damage of vision.
Foot care in diabetics is important as foot related complications are more common for those with diabetes. According to a research study, out of 69 million diabetics in India, 25% develop diabetic foot ulcers of which 50% become infected, requiring hospitalization while 20% need amputation. Hence, foot care becomes inevitable for people with diabetes.
In our experiences what we have learnt for poor blood glucose/sugar control is improper adherence to diabetic diet. We understand that our eating habit has a very important role to play in sugar control. Hence, a general diet prescription may not help to control diabetes. Medsugar work with patients on individual basis and customise diet plans according to their food habit so that patients never feel they eat what they hate.
Getting a blood check done at morning has never been a good experience. Added to that is post prandial (after breakfast) sugar test again usually discourage diabetic patients to go for a regular monitoring of their blood sugar. Medsugar has introduced a concept called " Home Care " and " Clinic at Home " while home care aimed at individual patients centred service like blood sample collection, delivery of medicine and physical therapy, Clinic at home aimed to cater complete medical services to the group of people (minimum of ten) at their door step including diabetologist consultation.
