Diabetes Checkup in Alam Damai, Cheras

Living with diabetes requires proactive management, and almost 20% of all Malaysian adults are currently experiencing it. At Klinik Azurose, we offer a complete suite of diabetes checkup services to empower you with the necessary tools to take precautions with your health and plan accordingly.

What goes into a diabetes checkup?

A diabetes checkup, or cek kencing manis, is a simple process that determines whether a person has diabetes, a chronic condition that affects the body’s ability to regulate blood sugar levels. It is typically carried out via blood tests, which assess the levels of glucose in your bloodstream. Identifying diabetes early can help prevent complications and improve quality of life. A comprehensive screening usually includes:

Medical History

Your doctor will discuss your medical history, including past diagnoses, your family history to understand your risk factors for diabetes complications, and your current lifestyle choices.

Physical Examination

A physical exam will check your overall health, including weight, blood pressure, heart rate, and body mass index (BMI). Your doctor may examine your feet for signs of nerve damage or poor circulation.

Lab Tests

We utilize advanced blood tests to monitor blood sugar levels, assess kidney function, and check for other diabetes-related markers.

What are the symptoms of diabetes?

Diabetes can develop gradually, and sometimes there might not be any noticeable symptoms in the early stages. However, here are some common symptoms to be aware of so you can catch it early on and receive the treatment you need.

Increased thirst

You might feel excessively thirsty and drinking more water than you usually would.

Frequent urination

If you find yourself needing to use the restroom more often, usually at night, it may be your body getting rid of excess sugar.

Increased hunger

The body may sense it’s not getting enough energy from food due to problems with insulin use, and respond by making you feel hungry even if you’ve eaten.

Sudden weight loss

Even though you might be eating more, your body may not be able to effectively use the energy from food if you have diabetes.

Increased fatigue

Feeling constantly tired can be a sign of undiagnosed diabetes. It’s caused when your body struggles to use glucose for energy.

Blurred vision

High blood sugar can affect the lenses in your eyes, causing them to swell and temporarily blur your vision. We can check for this.

Slow-healing sores

Diabetes can also impair circulation and slow down the healing process of cuts, scrapes, wounds, or even bruises.

Numb in hands/feet

Nerve damage caused by prolonged high blood sugar can lead to numbness or tingling sensations in the extremities.

It’s important to note that not everyone with diabetes will experience all of these symptoms, and some people may experience none at all. Many people can even miss these milder symptoms because they’re not in immediate pain, but recognizing the combination of symptoms can help you get the preventative measures you need.

If you’re concerned about your risk of diabetes or experience any of these symptoms persistently, our doctors are available for proper diagnosis and blood sugar testing. 

Who is at risk of diabetes?

Certain factors significantly increase your risk of developing diabetes. If you fall into any of these categories, a diabetes checkup is recommended:

  • Age: The risk of type 2 diabetes increases especially after 45.
  • Family History: Having a parent, sibling, or child with diabetes increases your risk.
  • Weight: Being overweight or obese is a major risk factor for type 2 diabetes due to preexisting eating habits.
  • Prediabetes: A condition with higher than normal blood sugar levels but not high enough for a diabetes diagnosis.
  • Physical Inactivity: A sedentary lifestyle increases your risk.

For women in particular:

  • Gestational Diabetes: A temporary form of diabetes that develops during pregnancy can increase your risk of developing type 2 diabetes later in life.
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS): A hormonal disorder in women that can increase diabetes risk.

Dr. Farhana Abdul Aziz, MD demonstrated exceptional professionalism, compassion, and expertise throughout my first appointment. Their personalized approach to care made me feel confident and supported every step of the way. They took the time to listen to our concerns, and provide thorough explanations of each stage of my pregnancy. Not only did Dr. Farhana provide top-notch medical care, but they also showed genuine empathy and kindness, which truly made a difference during such a significant life event. Their attention to detail and dedication to ensuring the health and well-being of both myself and my baby were evident in every interaction. I am grateful to have had Dr. Farhana as my obstetrician and would highly recommend them to anyone seeking exceptional prenatal care!

The environment is so nice and calming. All the staff are so polite especially Dr. Aireen. She explained about my illness so well. Plus, she also gave me a treatment right away to relieve my pain. The girl in charge for registration was also very kind even though she looked so tired. Yet she still puts a smile when a customer comes. The price is also reasonable. Thank you so much. I will definitely come again.
