Diabetes Destination

Recent Study India is Witnessing alarming rate of conversion – DIABETES DESTINATION

Yet another milestone achievement by Dr. Mohan's Diabetes Specialities Centre

A 3 month old infant, Baby Ivana Das, an insulin dependent, was brought to Dr. Mohan’s Diabetes Specialities Centre and was diagnosed with Neonatal Diabetes.
She was successfully treated after genetic analysis by the team of experts at Dr. Mohan’s Diabetes Specialities Centre.

Addressing the media, Dr. Mohan, Chairman & Chief Diabetologist, Dr. Mohan’s Diabetes Specialities Centre informed that “Neonatal diabetes is a rare form of diabetes and is totally different from Type 1 (juvenile-onset, or insulin-dependent) diabetes and type 2 (adult-onset, or non-insulin dependent) diabetes. Making an accurate diagnosis of neonatal diabetes is important since many of these children can be managed with oral diabetes tables, than with insulin”.

With the right diagnosis and proper treatment protocols, the baby is now insulin independent and can continue with just tablets, which is a miraculous happening in her life. We wish her a healthy and happy years of long life!

The Deakin Special Higher Degree by Research Workshop was conducted on the 5th and 6th of November 2014. One of the most interesting highlights of the workshop was the Innovation Workshop session conducted by two of Deakin’s most eminent professors – Prof. Peter Hodgson, Director of Institute for Frontier Materials and Prof. Svetha Venkatesh, Chair in Complex Pattern Analysis from PRaDA(Pattern Recognition and Data Analytics). The DIRI students were given the task of creating an innovative product idea along with a 3 minute pitch presentation. The product idea that the MDRF team (Avinash Soundararajan, Abishamala Kingsly, Shruti Muralidharan) conceived was a mobile application named “SearchDR” to assist the Indian diabetic population to find the right health care physician at the right time according to their location. The product was well appreciated for three reasons –
1. It is a bite sized innovation and a need of the hour
2. We used the aid of a health care professional and a common man’s point of view to pass this idea fit among other ideas; multiple brainstorming sessions
3. The incorporation of info graphic in the presentations
