The Philosophy of therapy in Abou Seifein Diabetes Center depends on the principle of "Intense Diabetes Control". We believe on the importance of the patient's role in the success of the treatment regime.
Abou Seifein Diabetes Center (ADC) was established in 1991. It was founded by the blessing of St. Mercurious (Abou Seifein) and the prayers of mother Iriny head of Abou Seifein abbey who honored the opening of the center with her presence in February 1992.
The Philosophy of therapy in Abou Seifein Diabetes Center stems from the principle of “Intensive Diabetes Control” recommended by the international guidelines for Diabetes management based on “Evidence-based Medicine”.
The success of the Intensive diabetes treatment plan relies on our highly qualified and experienced staff members. Our team believes that the patient’s role is a major factor in the success of the treatment regimen. That’s why we dedicate a lot of time in the explanation of the different aspects of the disease, the details of treatment and the recommended food programs; for both the patient and his family members.
The center applies the latest hardware and advanced medical technology which adds accuracy to the diagnosis and treatment of the different types of diabetes. All this will give the patient a better chance in protecting himself from the serious complications of diabetes.
In the first visit, the diagnosis of the diabetes type is confirmed through medical examination, laboratory tests and diagnostic tools. The measurements of the Pancreas Beta cell functional capacity and the proportion of the body’s resistance to insulin (Insulin Resistance Scale) enable the medical team to confirm the type of diabetes and prepare a comprehensive treatment plan for each person depending on the type of diabetes, their needs and their test results.
