Diabetes Care Unit
Committed To Your Long-Term Wellbeing
Work with medical experts from all disciplines to diagnose, treat and manage your diabetes. No two patients are the same so we work closely with you to develop personalised care plans to suit your unique health profile. At Regency Specialist Diabetes Care Unit, you’ll understand what it means to have a team of medical experts rooting for you all the way.
Experiencing symptoms of diabetes? There are two common ways to test you or your loved one for diabetes:
- HbA1C test: This test measures the average blood glucose levels for the past 8 to 12 weeks. Compared to other tests, it offers a better indication of long-term glycemic control than blood and urinary tests for glucose levels. Plus it doesn’t require you to fast or drink a special liquid. If your A1C results are 6.3% or higher, you will test positive for diabetes.
- Fasting plasma glucose test: Doctors typically order this test for patients exhibiting diabetes symptoms and pregnant women. A fasting period of 8 hours is required before taking this test. If the test reports a blood glucose of 7.0 mmol/L or higher, you will test positive for diabetes.
Please remember to discuss your results with a doctor or healthcare professional.
Every patient is unique. This is why an effective diabetes care plan is one that is customised to your unique health profile and suits your lifestyle. To achieve this, a diverse and dedicated care team is key.
We also understand that testing positive for diabetes can be scary and those first few months might be difficult. To help, we provide services to support your mental health alongside your physical wellbeing.
A comprehensive programme should include:
- Specialist consultation sessions with pharmacists and dietitians
- Personalised plans for long-term care
- Access to diabetes support groups
- Educational sessions with diabetes experts
- Consultation with psychologists or psychiatrists
Understanding diabetes and it’s side-effects is crucial to your long-term health and wellbeing. Every patient should be equipped with an understanding of diabetes, how to measure and monitor their blood sugar levels and more.
Here’s an overview of what diabetes patients should know:
- Basics of diabetes and its effects on your body
- Basic self-monitoring and self-care
- Understanding your diabetes medication
- Understanding how exercise and nutrition can impact your health
- Exploring other complications depending on your unique health profile
Your lifestyle and health profile will change as you get older. Given that diabetes is a lifelong condition that needs to be monitored and managed closely, your diabetes care team should be committed to you for the long-term too.
