With great pleasure and pride, we would like to let you know that our study results on insulin pumps (i.e. continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion or CSII) have been published. Compared to the insulin injections, CSII use fine-tuned the glycemic status and imparted beneficial effects on the sexual functioning of T2DM males.

It was a historical and emotional moment for parents and their kids with T1DM when the Kerala Type 1 Diabetes Welfare Society (KT1DWS or Madhuranakshatrangal) was formed to create awareness and fight for the rights of children with T1DM. The inaugural function of the event forms the Gems Picture of the Month.

‘Glucose Management Indicator’ (GMI), a new term has been introduced for estimating A1C from Continuous Glucose Monitoring based on recent clinical trials using the most accurate CGM systems available. Please read on to grab more updates on diabetes care.
