are graded by the seriousness of their impact on society.
To list only a few, blindness, heart diseases, Kidney failure
and non-traumatic limb amputation are in most caused by
diabetes in our country.
For the cause of saving Diabetic peoples lives, Ameen Diabetic
Association was established in June 2001 at Karachi, with
the slogan of assuring the present & improving the future
of diabetes care in pakistan.
By the end of 2002 ADA was providing high standard diabetes
care at 4 major hospital in different areas of Karachi.
Till 2003 a central location was selected provisionally
for establishment of a complete diabetic institute.

Association till the end of 2004 a fullfleshed state of
the art Diabetic institute was established at centre of
Karachi & the Association was awarded proffessional

of the institute is ment for conducting scholorly seminars
& training work shops for general practitioners ,Specialist,
Physians & patients as well & it will prove a mile
stone in uplifting the standards of Diabetic care in Pakistan.
years ago, we made a promise to ourselves and to the people
of our community that we would evolve our programs and
services and offer life saving treatments that have traditionally
only been offered in tertiary care centers only. Today,
I am honoured to say that we are delivering on this promise.
After four year of dedicated hard work, In January, 2005
we opened our new Diabetes and Dental Care Center projects
of Amen Diabetic Association. With our Diabetes and dental
Care centers up and running, we have now set our sights
on building a Regional Diabetes Centre that will serve
the close to one billion people who live in Karachi. Working
closely with Diabetes Australia, we've set an ambitious
goal to start certificate courses and CME workshops by
Although we have invested much time on the development
of programs that provide advanced level services for people
throughout the Region and beyond, we haven't stopped evolving
the programs that serve our immediate community. Our Emergency
Department will soon be three times its size, and this
is just part of a bigger Redevelopment project that will
make Ameen Diabetic Association comfortable, more hospitable
place for its patients and their families.
With all this change, awareness and communication has
become key. As such, we have designed this web site to
give you and the people we serve quick, up-to-date information
about our programs, services and highly skilled staff.
As always, your questions and feedback are very important
to us,so please feel free to contact us firstname.lastname@example.org

Welcome to the Ameen Diabetic Association.
The Diabetes Care Center and Dental Care Center are comprehensive
centers, recognized as a world leader in patient care, in
medical education, and in research to preserve and restore
Diabetic and Oral Health. For over 4 years, our physician-investigators
and scientists have actively searched for causes, preventive
measures, and most effective treatments for diseases and
disorders of the Diabetes.
Diabetic Asociation has earned national and international
recognition for its comprehensive programs in patient care,
research in diabetes sciences, Diabetes education and outreach
to the community. We are particularly proud of the physicians,
scientists, and technicians whom we have trained who are
now leaders in the local community.
The faculty and staff at Ameen Diabetic Asociation embrace
the challenge to continue to foster innovative and groundbreaking
advances in research, clinical care, and education necessary
to diagnose and treat Diabetes and Oral Health. I invite
you to explore our growing website for information on patient
services, Diabetes and Oral Health, our faculty, vision
research, and educational and training programs.
It is a paradox of our time that just as the concept of
separate diabetes care- centre has become a necessity for
standard treatment of diabetic patients world wide, the
demand for providing basic standard treatment of diabetes
& its complications are not met effectively by concerned
The nation that standaraised care for diabetic can bring
about tremendous results stems from the outcomes of the
trials & studies conducted in the developed countries
at the end of the 20th century.
The outcomes of DCCT, UKPDS & ATP III have determined
the goals & standards of effective diabetic control
i.e. F.b.S< , R.B.S < 130 & B.P 110/70 if any
diabetic nephropathy co exists.
I on behalf Ameen Diabetic Association invite all concerned
for joint struggle to save 8 million diabetics of our country
from further blindness, kidney failure(nephropathy), heart
diseases & Limb amputations by improving the standard
diabetic care in Pakistan following the international guide
lines for treatment & prevention of diabetes & its
May God help us to achieve our goals –Ameen
