Dr Jothydev is one of the famous diabetologists in India and started practicing in 1997. Now he is having his own diabetes centre where patients from all over the world come to consult him and get physical examinations done. Dr Jothydev, in order to make diabetes treatment more cost effective, has started a new system in his centre for his patient which is called DTMS (Diabetes Tele Management System). DTMS training is the most important training session for the patients and their caretakers. Under this system, patients are educated on blood sugar monitoring and reporting. The patients have to measure their blood sugar values using the glucometer four times a day i.e., at fasting, 2 hrs after breakfast, 2 hrs after lunch and 2 hrs after dinner. Patients are provided with 2 landline numbers and 4 mobile numbers for reporting their blood sugar values. 24 hrs helpline number is also provided for use incase of emergencies. Patients can also report the SMBG values through email or web site. The use of DTMS has very well controlled the unpredictable emergencies related to hypoglycemia compared to the conventional treatment and at the same time helped reaching the goals of treatment. Research on this time tested system has proven to cut down the future costs of treating diabetes complications especially in old age.
