WORLD DIABETES DAY 2018

November 13, 2018

Every year world diabetes day is celebrated on 14th of November. This year Wellness Diabetes Speciality Clinic is dedicating World Diabetes Day to children suffering from Type 1 Diabetes, as they are future of our nation. Young people with Type 1 diabetes need to inject insulin or get insulin delivered by a pump on a daily basis in order to survive. Each day is a balancing act between the amount of food eaten, exercise taken and insulin injected to maintain a safe blood glucose level. This can be difficult for children, young people and their families to manage which is why support from us is so important. Some guidelines are:

  1. Taking insulin and medications as suggested by diabetologist
  2. Keeping child physically active and hence maintaining healthy weight.
  3. Frequent blood sugar monitoring
  4. Watching out the food intake.
