Mission and aim
The purpose of Samatvam: to treat people with diabetes and other endocrine metabolic disorders and research in diabetes and related metabolic conditions.
It is our goal through these efforts:
to identify therapeutic goals and develop strategies for the prevention and early detection of diabetes and other phenotypes of the metabolic syndrome
• to identify therapeutic goals for the prevention and treatment of late diabetic complications leading to micro- and macrovascular complications
• to optimise new and existing treatments and intervention strategies through clinical trials in order to improve the prognosis and quality of life of persons with diabetes and other phenotypes of the metabolic syndrome.
• to ensure the transferring of scientific achievements to clinically applicable treatment strategies and, in turn, to ensure that new research-based knowledge is implemented in clinical practice
The development area primarily concerns translational research, transferring of knowledge and findings from clinical research to clinical practice. This research is directed towards strengthening the individual patient’s possibilities of optimal diabetes management through self-care and empowerment. This research activity is mainly founded in counseling research.
