Call & Cure- Online Doctor Consultation
How Call & Cure works
Regardless of where you are with diabetes—newly diagnosed, fighting type 1 or type 2, or being there for a loved one—there’s something you should know: help is here. Let’s beat this thing together. You can book an online doctor consultation to discuss your diabetic problems.
Here are the few important things about Type1 & Tyep2 diabetes
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune condition. It happens when your body attacks your pancreas with antibodies. The organ is damaged and doesn't make hormone. Treatment for Type 1 diabetes involves injecting hormone and taking medications as needed.

When it comes to the numbers, there's no one-size-fits-all target. A1C target levels can vary by each person's age and other factors, and your target may be different from someone else's. The goal for most adults with diabetes is an A1C that is less than 7%.
