Diabetology is the study, management, and medical treatment of diabetes. A doctor who specialises in diabetology is known as a "diabetologist." A diabetologist can be a doctor that exclusively specialises in diabetology or an internal medicine specialist with an additional specialisation in diabetology.

Our exclusive endocrinology programmes are based on preventing the early onset and progression of diabetes. Under the guidance of expert specialists, our diabetology department excels at providing the best care to help you overcome the trouble of diabetes.

Symptoms of Diabetes

The onset of diabetes can be indicated by the following symptoms:

  • Increase in hunger pangs
  • Sudden and severe temperatures
  • Unexpected or unexplainable weight loss
  • Sudden urge to urinate or urinate frequently
  • Blurry vision
  • Exhaustion and fatigue
  • Unexpected and non-healing sores
  • Increased problems with your sexual and reproductive health.
  • Gradual decrease or loss of strength in your muscles

Types of Diabetes

Usually, the treatments and plans for managing diabetes are based on an accurate diagnosis of the disease and the specific type of diabetes. These are the types and classifications of diabetes that you should watch out for.

Type 1 diabetes: This is an autoimmune disease that destroys the insulin-producing cells in your pancreas.

Type 2 diabetes: This is the most commonly diagnosed type of diabetes, and it’s called "insulin-resistant diabetes" because this type of diabetes makes your body resistant to insulin, resulting in a sugar buildup in the blood. This type of diabetes is also commonly diagnosed in young people.

Pre-diabetes: This type of diabetes results in increased levels of blood sugar, but they're not high enough to be diagnosed as Type 2 diabetes. It's most commonly diagnosed in middle-aged or older adults.

Gestational diabetes: This type of diabetes affects expecting mothers during pregnancy due to insulin-blocking hormones produced by the placenta. The treatment for this type of diabetes usually involves taking into account the health of both the mother and the child.
