Diabetes Education of doctors

The management of diabetes is ever changing. India is now known as the global capital of diabetes in the world. Diabetes is posing a major threat to our economy and health scenario. The massive increase in diabetes is not only because of life style changes but also due to the massive increase in the aging population.. The countries with the largest number of people with diabetes are projected to be in the year 2025 are India 57 million, China 38 million and the U.S.A. 22 million. The greatest increase between 1995 and 2025 is expected to occur in India (195%)
Over the years, it has been understood that, though there are several medications to treat diabetes, majority of patients ultimately develop serious complications. Probably, it is because of the failure of the existing and established treatment regimens, newer schemes are developed and recommended periodically. Dr. Jothydev has delivered talks at various sessions on the updated management of diabetes. Though, he is involved in almost all aspects in the management of diabetes, his area of special interest is in ' diabetes in the elderly'.
