Diabetology

There are two basic forms of diabetes. In type 1, also called juvenile diabetes, the pancreas doesn’t produce sufficient insulin, so it starts to use the glucose needed for the system to operate.

Diabetology

 Type 2 diabetes is the illness of overweight adults, which usually develops insidiously and without symptoms, while the vital organs are damaged by constantly high levels of blood sugar.

When should you visit a diabetologist?

  • Suspicion of diabetes: fatigue, visual disturbances, abnormal thirst, weight loss, frequent urination, recurrent yeast infections
  • Existing diabetes
  • For diabetes screening, recommended: for everyone over the age of 45, under the age of 45 for those: whose BMI is above 25 (weight (kg)/height (meter)2, e.g. a 165 cm tall person weighing 60 kg: 60/1,652=22,04) and also has one of the risk factors (e.g. high blood pressure or cholesterol) and for women who have delivered a baby with a birth weight over 4.1 kg

Diabetes screening is part of our screening packages and is included in the internal medicine visit.

  • Dr Baló explained everything. He was helpful, thorough and kind but also very definite. I was fully satisfied in every way. I would also highlight the attitude of his assistant too. She was kind, smiling, professionally prepared and did a good job with taking my blood.

  • In the current situation, it really helps if you can ask the doctor about preventative measures during the pandemic. She was happy to reply and was very clear, which is really positive.
