 Indian Diabetes Research Papers Presented in Paris Conference

Two research papers from Kerala were presented at the 8th International Conference on Advanced Technologies and Treatments for Diabetes (ATTD) in Paris.

The original research was carried out at Jothydev's Diabetes Research Centre in Trivandrum.


Both the studies were linked to Diabetes Tele Management System (DTMS); one of them using insulin pump therapy to treat sexual dysfunction in men and the other using home blood pressure monitoring to prevent the progression of diabetic kidney disease.

Nephropathy or kidney disease has evolved as a major and common complication in diabetes. With the onset of kidney disease, the cost of treating diabetes escalates by four to five folds. Eventually, patients require regular dialysis and even renal transplantation.

In this original research, patients were monitoring their blood sugars and blood pressures at their own houses and via the Diabetes Tele Management System, instructions were carried out.

The study proved prevention of progression of kidney disease in those meticulously making use of Diabetes Tele Management System along with home blood pressure monitoring.

In another study in men with sexual dysfunction, men with diabetes and sexual dysfunction demonstrated a profound improvement in their erectile function, sexual desire, orgasmic function and overall sexual satisfaction with use of insulin pump therapy for 6 months when compared to conventional insulin injections with insulin pen.

Advanced Technologies and Treatments for Diabetes (ATTD) is the world's biggest diabetes technology conference being conducted in Europe every year.

The researchers from Jothdyev's Diabetes Research Center include Dr.Jothydev Kesavadev, Gopika Krishnan, Dr. Pradeep Babu, Dr. Arun Shankar, Geethu Sanal, Jayasree Lally and Sunitha Jothydev.
