Shah handed over the Diacon Gold Medal to Dr.Jothydev in recognition of his research and accomplishments in preventing complications with the help of diabetes technologies. Dr. Jothydev lectured on the topic ‘Practice Changing User-Friendly Diabetes Technologies - New for 2018 and Beyond’.

All stages of diabetes require the use of technologies for an in-depth evaluation, treatment or both. Diabetes being a silent killer, patients often use these technologies only for treating the expensive complications of the disease such as those affecting the heart, kidney, sexual organs and the eye. Instead, the early use of technologies for the prevention of complications, when patients are still free of symptoms of the disease is to be encouraged to retain the quality of life and avoid future treatment costs. The treatment of diabetes is heading towards a paradigm shift with features like heart rhythm recording available along with new wearable devices and the simultaneous recording of glucose levels continuously, and with the introduction of newer gadgets with improved accuracy, said Dr.Jothydev.
