Success Story for OMR Diabetes Clinics Doctor Dr. Usha Ayyagari

Success story of Mr. Ganapathi at Apollo Sugar Clinics, OMR, Chennai

I am Ganapathi and I have juvenile diabetes (type 1diabetes) since the age of 9 years. I have had diabetes for the past 22 years. I am here to talk about my experience and the way things are right now after meeting Dr. Usha Ayyagari. I have been visiting Apollo Sugar Clinics for the past one year. I can clearly see the difference before visiting Apollo Sugar and after consulting Dr. Usha Ayyagari. Previously, I was not aware of carbohydrate counting. I was only on insulin therapy and not on an insulin pump. I have found carbohydrate counting very useful. I am able to eat the foods I want with carbohydrate counting. I am experiences the advantages of being on an insulin pump. I am also glad to say that the team here at Apollo Sugar is great and I have never been disappointed. Big thanks to Apollo Sugar.
