Men are more likely than women to have undiagnosed type 2 diabetes; one reason may be that they are less likely to see their doctor regularly.

 If you are a woman with a history of gestational diabetes 

 Many women who have gestational diabetes go on to develop type 2 diabetes later in life.

If you are a woman and have been diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Women with PCOS have a high prevalence of glucose intolerance and type 2 diabetes. They also display multiple risk factors for the progression of glucose intolerance and the development of frank fasting hyperglycemia

If you have a close diabetic relative

There is a link between type 2 diabetes and family history, having a mother, father, sister or brother with diabetes increases your risk . Although Genes alone are not enough, the risk also relates to environmental and lifestyle factors that family members share.

If you have High blood pressure

That raises the risk for type 2 diabetes, but also increases the risk of heart attack, stroke, eye problems, and kidney disease.

If you do not exercise

Exercising regularly lowers your risk for prediabetes and type 2 diabetes

What patients say about us

This is the first time I have tried Tabibi 247 and I just wanted to express my gratitude to such great service and professional team members. I would inform you that Dr.Sayed was very helpful and informative. He took his time to explain everything which I really appreciate. I am just proud that such an establishment is in Egypt.

Best medical experiences ever ~ Rania

Today my son had an accident resulting in a large deep cut on the back of his head. Dr Radwa came round and was absolutely amazing from start to finish. She phoned the local hospital to arrange the stitches, took us there with her driver, arranged everything and stayed with us whilst my semi hysterical 2.5 year old received a numbing injection and 3 stitches. She absolutely went above and beyond. My son is still asking about the doctor!

Outstanding service. Thank you ~ Jen

Before Tabibi I used to go to work, leaving my baby at home sick, feeling worried and tense. Now i am more relaxed and happy to be your customer. Being able to reach your doctor at anytime is a blessing. Thank your Tabibi that is worth a million
