The patient was treated of diabetes type 2

All liked it. There are not enough translators and therefore girls translators are always under stress. Well, they are great. Doctors, coordinators and equipment liked everything. Minus that the clinic is far from the city and transfer from the clinic only once.

What is type 2 diabetes?

Type 2 diabetes (also called adult-onset or non-insulin-dependent) is a longstanding metabolic disorder. The body resists or doesn’t produce enough insulin to maintain glucose (sugar) level in blood.

How does diabetes appear?

Specialists of diabetes outpatient clinics prescribe drug therapy in addition to diet and physical activity. Such complex approach helps patients to achieve target blood sugar level.

In some cases, specialists in diabetes treatment centers prescribe insulin therapy. Using this treatment method a patient controls blood glucose level and can avoid complications of the disease. Patients have to inject insulin. They shouldn’t take it orally, because it can be digested.

During the consultation with an endocrinologist, the pros and cons of each medication are discussed. The best treatment for diabetes type 2 depends on the kinds of the drugs and aspects of the patient’s health.

All was good. The only thing that overshadowed, the first reception of the doctor. I had to sell more than two hours, although I arrived 15 minutes before the appointed time. Everything else was on top!

The patient was treated of multiple sclerosis

The clinic operated on the father (oncology and urology). Excellent chamber, a wonderful surgeon Dr. Wolfgang Dillenburg and head. Department of prof. Edward Becht. Protocol examination on good equipment, friendly doctors, excellent postoperative care. Most of all I was surprised that Prof. Bekht personally made a detour twice a day: in the morning with medical staff, in the afternoon one. But in general, everything is sharpened by a long full life. I am very pleased. What else I liked: the patient is explained everything in detail, offering several ways to solve the problem. It's great!

I am Zalikhan, mother Jannat, very pleased and very grateful to Professor Bshorer and the medical staff Helios. We had the risk of removing the eye, but the result was pleasantly shocking. The eye was saved, the vision was not disturbed, the tumor was removed, the operation was successful. Many thanks to Prof. Dr. R. Bshorer, a world-famous doctor with golden hands and a kind heart. Jannat was lucky to get to him. May the Almighty protect all children and the sick. Health to all! 8938-8902684 Thanks you! I'm very happy. I haven't sighed like that right now for these 2 years. Everything went, now everything is fine. We are very satisfied and very pleased. Who needs to ask about the details let him communicate by vatsapu. With pleasure I will tell you everything.

The patient was consulted in this clinic

Normal clinic, did not see anything special. They prescribed good medicines, I felt better. There were also very good translators. It is better to always be insured, because if there is insurance, the clinic offers a 50% discount.
