Diabetes is on the rise worldwide and is a medical condition that deserves to be taken very seriously. More and more people are suffering from this metabolic disorder – be it Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes – in which blood sugar levels are too high over a prolonged period. Diabetes must be treated because it is often associated with serious accompanying and secondary conditions such as damage to the heart, blood vessels, kidneys, eyes and feet.
The diabetes departments of Hamburg hospitals offer comprehensive diagnostic services and treatment concepts which are scientifically founded and certified by the respective specialist associations. During their stay in hospital, patients are provided not only with a precise medical history of their diabetes, but also with flexible insulin therapy tailored to their individual needs. In addition, the hospitals offer structured training courses lasting several days in which patients learn about their condition and about how to take their medication correctly; they are also taught how best to adapt their diets. Naturally, patients are also examined thoroughly for any indications of possible secondary conditions of diabetes during their stay in hospital.
Diabetics can improve their quality of life if they are given the knowledge and skills necessary to better manage their condition in everyday life. Here, at Hamburg's largest diabetes clinic, we provide patients with a comprehensive diagnosis and insulin therapy that is as flexible as possible.
