Our well trained diabetes educators provide all the useful knowledge to the patient, required by him, after the consultation with the doctor. Diagnosis of diabetes is like a blow, it affects physical as well as emotional health. Negative thoughts associated with diabetes transform from denial to sorrow, anger, rebellion, grief and patient simply gives in. In such circumstances diabetes education and counseling becomes necessary to provide emotional stability to the patient. From diagnosis till optimal control, our competent counselors, very skillfully wear off all negative psychological effects and help patients to go successfully through all emotional phases of this chronic disease. They are empowered to deal with negative thoughts, tension and anxiety and are also taught to get support from the family. We believe that diabetes management is another name of life management.
