Our mothers spend most of their time worrying about everyone else, brushing aside and ignoring her own health conditions. Although we can’t repay her back, we surely can take care of her, as with growing age our mothers are often at risk of a range of health conditions including Diabetes, bone diseases, heart problems and even breast cancer. This Mother’s Day, rather than pretty trinkets, gift her something more long-lasting and meaningful; let us give her the gift of health.

At Dr. Mohans Diabetes Specialities, Precision Diabetes Treatment is practiced since every patient is unique. An expert first keenly observes the patient’s journey with diabetes as to the age of onset, duration of diabetes, family history, BMI, diet, habits, physical conditions, comorbidities, complaints, medical & surgical history, etc. Based on these findings, investigations are done to assess the progression of diabetes and the “genotype” and “phenotype” of the patient. Further treatments are based on the propensity of the patient to develop a complication from diabetes or any of the co-morbidities.
Due to the evidence-based approach to diabetes treatment based on the research findings and the deep experience from the experience of more than 50 lakh + consultations undertaken over 30+ years, patients improve in their HbA1c levels within the first year of treatment, with significant improvement in body weight, kidney functions, sugar control, cholesterol levels, blood pressure, and even their quality of life. Patients are motivated towards a sustainable diet plan without any crash diets and lifestyle modifications as per their mobility levels. Patients are motivated to adopt a good fitness regimen to increase fitness, flexibility endurance, and therefore better cardiac fitness.
At Dr. Mohan’s the aim of the treatments and the approach is to ward off all possible complications of diabetes and help the patients live a long, productive, mindful life despite diabetes. Special emphasis is provided to keep away from foot, kidney, eye, heart complications with regular preventive check-ups and close monitoring of sugar levels using the latest technological advances..
My brother is also a doctor. He suggested Dr. Mohan’s diabetes for my diabetes treatment. Because it has a research institute as well. They give lots of advice to overcome diabetes. Since I am 75 years old, following the advice is very difficult. But they have really motivated me well, so I started following, and now I am able to see the results are coming to normal. Thanks for the Dr. Mohan’s Diabetes Specialities Team
For the last 33 years, I am managing diabetes without any complications with Dr. Mohan’s diabetes. The affectionate approach was able to follow the medications and the given diet pattern. I really like the concept of satisfying each patient in this hospital. My heartfelt thanks to all the doctors & Dietitians for managing my diabetes successfully without any problem.
Diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, low haemoglobin, low vitamin D, and menopause are one of the most common problems encountered by Indian women as they age. Diabetes, hypertension, and hypercholesterolemia are caused by a lack of proper diet and exercise. Vitamin D deficiency is rampant in India. Menopause results in hormonal imbalances and causes several problems.
Every woman needs special care in nutrition, every phase of her life. Menarche, pregnancy, lactation (breastfeeding), raising children, and menopause each phase needs special changes in nutrition. Unfortunately, most women have low haemoglobin in India and by age of 45 also start developing lifestyle diseases due to bad diet choices combined with a lack of recreational sports activities. Women need to heed what they eat. At Dr. Mohans Diabetes Specialities, special emphasis is given to dietary guidance by experts to prevent and treat the nutrition problems in women
As women age, joint aches and immobility become an issue. Diabetes also causes joint problems like frozen shoulder, knee stiffness, foot burning, etc. Most problems can be prevented by simple exercises. At Dr. Mohans Diabetes Specialities, we specialize in teaching simple fitness exercises to people with diabetes according to their mobility to enhance their health.
Stress and depression are underdiagnosed in women. Women need psychological counselling and support to overcome the effects of stress on their health. Dr. Mohans provides psychological support and counsels women with Diabetes
Long-standing diabetes sometimes becomes recalcitrant to older drugs. The new and latest generation of drugs is more potent in controlling blood sugars with heart and kidney protective properties. At Dr. Mohan’s Diabetes Specialities Centres, we also check on the insulin secretion of the patient and the functioning of the pancreas. Thereafter, a decision on changing to insulin is made, depending on the patient’s ease. They are also educated on the usage of insulin pens or pumps so that they can remain active without the problem of taking injections repeatedly.
Continuous glucose monitoring is a boon to women who are active and wish to take control of their diabetes. It gives a clear picture of their hourly sugar level variation with food, exercise, sleep, and drugs, helping them make healthier choices. At Dr. Mohan’s Diabetes Specialities Centers, we have been using continuous glucose monitoring since 1991 and have had lakhs of case studies and successes in changing the lifestyle and sugar control of thousands of patients
