The Mahkota Diabetes Centre was officially launched on 8 September 2012 to provide comprehensive services tailored towards diabetic care. The Centre also provides an avenue for the consultants to refer their patients for diabetes care counseling and health education.
This is the first such centre set up in a private hospital in Melaka. Our team members consist of Consultants, Diabetic Educator, Dietician and Physiotherapist.
This centre is set up to educate you with specific knowledge about diabetes, early detection of the disease, and to reduce the risk of complications. We also aim to promote management of diabetes through the assistance of healthcare professionals. Lastly, we hope to inspire you to lead a healthier lifestyle.
Among the services offered at our Centre is diabetes counseling for patients to improve their understanding of the disease and its prevention, management and potential complications. Health education is offered regarding prescribed medication, continuous glucose monitoring, self-monitoring of glucose, self-administration of insulin and its management, as well as dietary advice. In addition to that, we even provide foot examination, care and exercise.
The Centre also conducts a Diabetic Retinopathy Screening Programme to detect diabetic retinopathy and other retinal problems too including age related macular degeneration.
Our equipment include a glucometer set, iPro2 set for continuous glucose monitoring, demonstration set for insulin pump, weighing scale, insulin pens and insulin needles. The equipment used for foot examination includes a monofilament, mirror, neurotip and tuning folk. Brochures and leaflets are provided as further educational material for patients.
