Island Hospital’s Diabetes Centre provides patient-centred comprehensive care for people with Type 1, Type 2, gestational (pregnancy related) diabetes, and related disorders.
Based on the type of diabetes you have, your age, lifestyle, overall health and whether you have other chronic conditions, we are a comprehensive one-stop solution centre that provides adequate treatment and management plan with your future in mind and we can ensure that your care remains seamless.
In our practice, we routinely treat patients using the constantly updated technological developments and are constantly performing research into diabetes-related international multi-centre clinical trials and related endocrine disorders.
Our goal is to help our patients prevent and manage complications associated with diabetes and take control of their health so that they can continue to live well and thrive.
Dr. Malik and Dr. Badrul Yeap work as part of a multidisciplinary team at Island Hospital that includes a clinical nurse specialist, dietician and psychologist to offer a holistic approach to bariatric surgery.
We offer the full complement of diabetes procedures, including gastric bypass and gastric sleeve surgery (also known as a sleeve gastrectomy), allowing us to select the treatment best suited to each patient.
Bariatric surgery has a profound effect on T2D. It is not uncommon for our T2D patients to come off of all of their diabetic medications after bariatric surgery.
Surgery for morbid obesity (bariatric surgery) has helped many people lose more weight than is possible by diet, and maintain that weight loss. It can dramatically improve quality of life and improve medical conditions associated with diabetes. Bariatric surgery are thought to help in a different way, by affecting hormones, stomach bacteria and other substances that affect how the body handles insulin and blood sugar.
