The treatment of Diabetes in hospitals in Thailand is widespread, and the country is spearheading the work in Asia to minimize the incidence of this condition. Upon entering any Thai hospital, specific treatment for diabetes will be determined by a qualified physician, based on the patient’s age, overall health and medical history. The extent of the disease, tolerance for specific medications, procedures and therapies are also taken into account.
Persons with Type 1 Diabetes no longer produce insulin and must have insulin injections to use the glucose they obtain from eating. There are many considerations a person with Diabetes must take to properly manage his/her condition.
Although persons with Type 2 Diabetes may continue to produce adequate insulin for some time, their bodies can become incapable of using it. This syndrome is know as insulin resistance and may indicate the need for oral medications that can help stimulate the pancreas to release insulin or optimize the body's ability to use the insulin secreted.
A highly trained treatment team will determine precisely a patient’s type of Diabetes and commence a regime of care and treatment to alleviate the symptoms. They will also develop a management system to help the patient cope with the health risks involved. Treatment may include glucose monitoring, oral medications, insulin replacement therapy, meal planning, advice on the use of alcohol, advice on sodium use and healthy cooking tips.
