Diabetes Consultation

One in every ten adults in Sri Lanka has diabetes while its symptoms are not always obvious, which makes it a difficult disease to detect early on. Uncontrolled diabetes could lead to complications such as heart attacks and strokes, kidney disease, neuropathy, retinopathy, ulcerations, amputations, and blindness.

Our services include

Early detection

Because the ill-effects of diabetes can remain hidden for so long, by the time patients notice symptoms, more significant and irreversible problems may have cropped up. This is why we at CDEM put special emphasis on early screening, early detection and timely control.
Weight loss, excessive thirst, excessive urination, constant hunger, lethargy, slow-healing wounds, recurrent infections and blurred vision could all be signs of diabetes and if you have one of these symptoms, you should get screened early in order to start battling the disease as early as possible.

Cutting-edge technology

With CDEM’s state-of-the-art medical laboratory facilities, patients are able to get fast and accurate test results within just a few hours.
