The adult young diabetes clinic is a once weekly clinic designed to empower young adults with diabetes with the knowledge and skills required for diabetes self-management, managing hypoglycaemic and hyperglycaemic crisis, and to cope better with diabetes. The focus group of this clinic is patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus. We also have a dedicated team interested in the diagnosis and management of other types of diabetes in young individuals such as - Maturity onset diabetes of the young (MODY), lipodystrophic diabetes, diabetes due to diseases of the exocrine pancreas, type 2 diabetes in the young and syndromic causes of diabetes. Our multidisciplinary team comprising of diabetes educators, dietician, and endocrinologists provide individualized diabetes management plans through a structured program that provides diabetes self-management support, and helps patients overcome the barriers in self-management. We also involve the patient’s families to support in diabetes management.
In the pre-covid era we had peer group meetings during the clinic visits of the patients. Interaction of people with type-1 diabetes and their families with peers helps them overcome the feeling of loneliness and enhances self-confidence. We also provide guidance to our patients through a 24-hour helpline and through tele-consultations as and when needed.
