Types of Diabetes We Treat
Type 1 Diabetes
Type 1 diabetes is a chronic condition that occurs when the immune system attacks cells responsible for creating hormones needed to regulate blood sugar level.
Type 2 Diabetes
Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition that affects the way your body metabolises sugar (glucose) — an essential source of fuel for your body.
With type 2 diabetes, your body either resists the effects of blood sugar-regulating hormone or does not produce enough hormone to maintain normal glucose levels.
Gestational diabetes is high blood sugar (glucose) that develops during pregnancy and usually disappears after giving birth. It can happen at any stage of pregnancy but is more common in the second or third trimester.
It happens when your body cannot produce enough glucose regulating hormone to meet your additional needs in pregnancy. Gestational diabetes can cause problems for you and your baby during pregnancy and after birth. However, the risks can be reduced if the condition is detected early and well managed.
Prediabetes is when your blood glucose levels are too high, but not high enough to be called diabetes. People who develop type 2 diabetes usually have prediabetes first. If you have prediabetes, you are at a much higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Complications that Arise from Diabetes
Sexual Dysfunction in Diabetes
Sexual dysfunctions are common in people with diabetes and may arise from a variety of blood supply-related, nerve-related and hormonal derangements. Sexual problems related to diabetes extend beyond erectile dysfunction. They also include sexual desire and ejaculatory dysfunction in men.
