Other tests may also be used to evaluate diabetes management, such as C-peptide, insulin, and urinalysis. We provide Insulin pump therapy for Type-1 Diabetic patients. Insulin pump therapy is a type of diabetes treatment where a small computerized device is used to deliver a carefully calculated and regulated amount of insulin into the body. The device is usually worn on the body, usually either on the waistband or in a pocket. It continuously monitors the user’s blood sugar levels and delivers insulin when needed. The user can also manually adjust the insulin delivery rate when needed.

They belong to a group of inherited or acquired disorders of polyuria and polydipsia. A hormone called vasopressin or anti-diuretic hormone (ADH), is needed for the fluid that's filtered by the kidneys to go back into the bloodstream.
