    Default Diabetic Care in Thailand

    I am Type II diabetic, has anyone had experience of diabetic care in Thailand and the cost. Annual reviews, eye screening etc. Medication I think is still easy to buy over the counter as I did a few years ago when I left my tablets back in the UK.

    Any advice or experiences would be welcome.

    I would imagine any international hospital would provide those services at a price. On Thursday I had a heart attack in Pattaya and the hospital fitted a stent and provided all necessary meds including metformin etc.

    Fantastic service fro calling an ambulance to completing the operation less than 3 hours now not allowed to fly for a week but my insurers are organising hotels an hopefully a flight home next week

    Get well soon Ash. I did cardiac rehab for 6 weeks and go yearly for check ups, which I personally would recommend.

    Anybody there? What diet drinks available in LoS. Any beer ok for type 2 diabetes. Hoping not to have to test blood sugar every day if I can avoid it at all possible

    I have had Type II for nearly 20 years, I still drink beer, especially a cold one in Thailand. Not sure about the local sodas but the major ones are available Pepsi/Coke etc in diet form.

    Thanks Ivan. Any foods in Thailand that you avoid due to their sugar content?

    cheers Skippy

    I am type 2 diabetic and avoid no foods due to sugar content other than not eating 20+ doughnuts etc , If you keep up your regular meds and are sensible then Thai food should be fine.
    Odd things like sweet sticky rice and drinking Naam Daeng by the litre are not recommended just use common sense
