I often treat chronic conditions like diabetes and hormone deficiencies, which need treatment and self management over long periods of time. My greatest satisfaction lies in giving my patients and their parents an “Aha” moment when they understand what is happening to themselves and their children, , which helps them self manage with ever greater accuracy and confidence. It is sometimes just as important to find out what CANNOT be done as it is to fnd out what CAN be done and WHEN. I hope that you may find the information on this website useful. I would be happy to see you or your child in my clinic, but if this is not possible, I hope that the information will help you get the right treatment for your child wherever you may be.
The objective of good diabetes treatment is not to take less medication or fewer injections, but to manage the condition as a whole so that the person with diabetes is able to take part in all normal daily activities with minimal restrictions as a result of the diabetes, to achieve optimum long term health and reduce or delay the onset of diabetes complications.
