Research at Jothydev’s Diabetes and Research Center.

Jothydev’s Diabetes Research Center is globally known for original research presentations and publications on telemedicine in diabetes care, Insulin Pumps in type 1 and type 2 diabetes and papers related to advantages of continuous glucose monitoring system. We have a full fledged research unit where we have a very dedicated team of doctors, dietitians, pharmacists etc. Incidentally in the year 2009, Dr. Jothydev Kesavadev became the first speaker from the state of Kerala to deliver a lecture at the American Diabetes Association. In the same year he was an invited speaker at the International Diabetes Federation (again first time from Kerala) and spoke on body weight reduction with the judicious use of insulin pumps. The first international publication on insulin pump therapy from India came out from our research unit. This page provides a couple of links to some of our publications and presentations. The center is followingup more than ten thousand subjects via a unique Diabetes Tele Management System (DTMS®) since several years. We invite doctors, pharmacists and other qualified professionals enthusiastic in research related to diabetes (except Biotechnology, Bioinformatics) to contact us via email: jobs@jothydev.net

Our Achievement

This web page provides a couple of our research papers, which have been presented or published, and a hyperlink to the concerned web pages.We have an international team of doctors, medical students and Para medics working in our research team Those doctors, medical students, who like to be part of the research team for a fixed period can apply with full biodata to info@jothydev.net
