Diabetes Center


Since the opening of the diabetes clinic in 1986, the first Korean General Diabetes Center was opened in late 1996. Until now the Center has taken care of approximately 6,000 registered diabetic patients, and consists of a medical group comprising diabetic specialized doctors (physicians, ophthalmologists, and neurologists), a dietitian, nurses and social workers; a variety of rooms such as for consultation, specific examination, complication examination, blood vessel examination, fundus photography, dietary consultation and nursing consultation; and a large range of medical instruments. This Center conducts all examinations on the same day, and provides consultation about diabetic causes, exercise therapy, medicinal therapy, dietary options, nursing advice and so forth in specialized diabetes classes held twice a week (every Tuesday and Thursday).
The important elements in diabetic care are not only the fact that the blood sugar level is high, but also the control and prevention of the acute and chronic complications that are often associated with diabetes and that have the possibilities to cause severe disorders and death. This Center generally performs the examination and treatment of these complications as well as the diagnosis and control of diabetes itself.
