Program for Diabetic patients
The Metropolitan Community Clinic at Helliniko continues its work to support our much belabored society.
We’re initiating a program stressing a personal approach to monitoring the disease. Diabetic patients often have trouble maintaining a good balance of their condition. The reasons for this are many, such as an inability to maintain proper diet because of economic problems. Sometimes patients are eating at social kitchens and church meal programs – and that rules out being able to tailor their diet. Psychology and depression can play a role. All this and more can lead to bad habits and can even affect whether and when patients take their medication.
Under this program, small groups of patients (no more than 10) will check in with an endocrinologist once a week. Subjects to be discussed can include the everyday management of the condition, alternative diet options and combinations, access to exercise and appropriate exercise, medication maintenance and discussions on other issues that need to be addressed. The goal is to improve the quality of life for the patients and to avoid unpleasant consequences of this disease in the future.
This particular program is available exclusively to patients of our clinic. It is one initiative we are applying to put more emphasis on preventative medicine.
