Diabetology

Diabetes is a condition where the blood sugar (glucose) level is too high. This occurs when insulin, the hormone responsible for converting glucose into energy, is insufficient or is not being effectively utilized by the body. There are different types of diabetes and millions of people are affected worldwide. Diabetes if left untreated can lead to various other complications like heart disease, stroke, etc.

Shanmuga hospital has an exclusive Diabetic care center for treating Diabetic patients. Special screening programs and timely packages are also provided by some of the best diabetes doctors in Salem.

Diabetic Neuropathy
Diabetic Neuropathy is a complication where nerve damage is caused as a result of high blood sugar levels. It is a disease that progresses over the course of time and about half of the people affected by Diabetes are likely to be affected. Depending on where the damage is caused, there are different types of diabetic neuropathy. Types of diabetic neuropathy include peripheral, autonomic, proximal and focal neuropathy. People can be affected by one or more than one of these types.

Digital biothesiometer is used in the diagnosis of Diabetic neuropathy

Diabetic Retinopathy
This is a diabetic complication which affects the eyes. The blood vessels in the retina are affected due to high blood sugar levels. DR can sometimes lead to complete loss of vision. Impairment or blurring of vision is a common symptom. During the early stages, no symptoms can be observed. One third of the people who have diabetes worldwide are affected by diabetic retinopathy.

Ankle brachial index
The ankle brachial index test is done to check for peripheral artery disease (PAD). PAD is caused by the narrowing of arteries which leads to a reduction in the blood flow to the limbs. As a result, the individual experiences leg pain. PAD can increase the risk of heart attack. Ankle brachial index is a non-invasive method where the blood pressure in the ankle and arm are measured and compared. The narrowing or blockage of the arteries is indicated by the ankle brachial index value.
