(MENAFN Press) The medical team at the University Hospital Sharjah (UHS) was able to save the life of a woman in her fifties who suffers from diabetes and who had succumbed to sudden illness that caused most vital functions to be severely compromised. The woman's condition had seriously deteriorated because none of the interventions or the treatments she had received at other medical centres had been appropriate. She underwent prompt and effective surgical intervention at the UHS that cured the symptoms that had resulted from the previous diagnosis. The patient was discharged from hospital in a healthy and stable condition and was able to safely resume the activities of daily living



The patient had been visiting hospital and medical centres for a week and her condition was clinically diagnosed as hyperglycaemia (high blood sugar) which requires raising the dose of insulin. She did not respond to the new dosage and was taken to University Hospital Sharjah where specialists immediately admitted her to the intensive care unit



Dr Ahmed Abdul Aziz Sharab, Consultant and Head of Anesthesia Department at the University Hospital Sharjah, said: "Diabetes is a common disease that requires continuous treatment and follow-up. The symptoms of diabetes related complications or diseases can at times fall outside of the normal scope, therefore making them difficult to diagnose and treat. The patient was suffering as a result of inaccurate clinical diagnosis.



Sharab added: "From the first instant, we observed acute health problems and a decline in the body's vital functions. We suspected the patient's condition was due to complications in the abdomen and she was referred to a surgery consultant who confirmed our suspicions. An immediate surgical intervention was carried out and the patient recovered and was discharged. We are pleased that she has joined her family and is able to perform routine daily activities.



Emergency procedures were taken to restore vital functions. After a four hour surgery, the patient was found to with a hole in large intestine accompanied by purulent infections in the abdomen with no signs of hyperglycaemia as was clinically diagnosed by other medical centres. After the successful surgery, the patient was kept in intensive care until her condition was stabilised. Later, she was discharged from the UHS



UHS consultants advise diabetes patients not to neglect treatment and to check up on their condition if at any point in time they feel serious sickness or acute pain. Diabetes patients must inform their doctors immediately when new symptoms appear to enable doctors to detect the disease early enough, soothe the symptoms, administer the appropriate medication and speed up recovery
