Treatment of type 1 diabetes in Israel
The failure of the pancreas to produce insulin, as a rule, manifests itself in childhood, so type 1 diabetes is also called juvenile. The disease is characterized by weight loss with an insatiable feeling of hunger, as well as fatigue, irritability, deterioration of the visual organs and some other symptoms.

How type 1 diabetes is diagnosed in Israel
One of the advantages of the medical services of Israeli medical institutions is the efficiency and accuracy of diagnostics, which directly affects the positive passage of therapy, because often a delay in the detection of a disease becomes the price of irreparable consequences. A patient with suspected diabetes mellitus of the 1st degree, admitted to the clinic, is examined on the first day by a doctor who collects an anamnesis and prescribes additional diagnostic procedures:
- tests that determine the level of sugar and glycated hemoglobin;
- blood test to detect autoantibodies;
Prices of diagnostic procedures for a patient with type 1 diabetes can be found on the clinic’s website or directly in the institution. The final cost of treatment depends on the characteristics of the method of insulin therapy chosen by the doctor, the time spent in the clinic.
