Empowering and Supporting Patients with Diabetes

When you are living with diabetes, it helps to have specially trained experts on your team. At Diabetes Care Centurion, we aim to ease the burden of diabetes and improve the well-being of our patients through compassionate and individualised management of the disease by education, empowerment, and advanced treatments.

 

Our dedicated multidisciplinary team consists of GP Diabetologists, a lifestyle coach and diabetes educator, a podiatrist, a biokineticist, dieticians, ophthalmologists, and more.

 

Diabetes Care Centurion also offers comprehensive cardiovascular risk assessments for non-diabetic individuals with a risk of heart and blood vessel diseases. Our team uses current practice guidelines and the latest evidence-based treatments to provide the patient with individualised health care and education and to support the person living with a chronic condition in achieving their health goals.

 

Diabetes Care Centurion is committed to support and guide our patients at all times, but especially during the difficult initial period after the diagnosis has been made.

Knowledge about diabetes is the first step toward living successfully with the disease, and Diabetes Care Centurion makes it our mission to supply the patient with self-care skills needed to control diabetes. We will be with you every step of the way!

 

Our Vision and Mission

At Diabetes Care Centurion, our vision for our patients with diabetes is to:

> With our patients set goals and targets, to enable them to lead a better quality of life by reaching a meaningful lower risk for the onset and development of both micro- and macrovascular complications as well as with a minimum of acute side effects, for example, hypoglycemic incidents; and

> Lower the risk for long-term irreversible complications by early detection of and appropriate treatment for the early signs of vascular complications.

 

The mission, passion, and responsibility of our team of professionals is to empower and support patients with diabetes by:

> Education to understand the disease, and to coach our patient throughout the treatment period at our clinic.

> Motivating and encouraging them to follow their individualised treatment plan and thus enabling the patient with diabetes to live a life where the disease is just a small part of their daily routine and not something that takes up every hour of every day.

> To screen for all major cancers and other co-morbidities and complications.

> Attend to our patient’s acute ailments for a more holistic approach.
