At its core, precision is a model that proposes customization of health care with medical practices, testing, decisions and treatments tailored to the individual patient level. Diagnostic tests and therapies are selected not only on the basis of generic symptoms but also by the specific risk factor profile and health history obtained from genetic profiling.
Diabetes is a complex health condition where symptoms differ from person to person and so does the diagnosis. Present day refinements in technology and advancements in genomics and other fields has proved that there are at least 20 types of diabetes that exists. It is important to diagnose and understand an individual’s body type, genes, and other factors before prescribing any sort of treatment. An individual’s diagnosis can only be prescribed after assessing and conducting the essential tests. Thus, the precision method provides tailor made diagnosis and treatment for people with diabetes.
‘Precision Diabetes’ will make it possible to accurately classify a patient and determine the type of diabetes any individual is suffering from depending on which the treatment for the patient will be prescribed.
At Dr. Mohan’s, we constantly try to innovate and provide the best diabetes care to our patients, launch of ‘Precision Diabetes’ is just another humble step towards it.
