• clinique-pasteur-maladie-chronique-definition


    Diabetes is a chronic disease characterised by an increase in blood sugar levels, or hyperglycaemia. This hyperglycaemia is due to a deficiency in insulin secretion by the pancreas.


    Diagnosis is performed by blood assay.

  • clinique-pasteur-maladie-chronique-types

    Main types of diabetes

    Type 2 diabetes: the most common type. Heredity, overweight and a sedentary lifestyle are the predisposing factors, and disease onset often occurs with age.


    Type 1 diabetes: results from the destruction of insulin-secreting cells, most often through an autoimmune (antibody) process. It affects mostly children and young adults but can occur at any age.


    So-called secondary diabetes: a consequence of pancreatic disease, pancreatitis, surgery, other diseases resulting in hyperglycaemia or certain medicinal treatments.


    Gestational diabetes: occurs during pregnancy and disappears after delivery. It can be a precursor to diabetes onset in later years.

     biologists from the Pasteur Clinic

    - nurses familiar with diabetes management and competent in treatment education
    - dietitians with extensive experience with diabetes

    1st day programme

    2nd day programme

     The INSULIN group for patients already on insulin or about to go on insulin

    These sessions are interactive, with a spontaneous, question-and-answer format supported by teaching aids.


    A 3rd half-day meeting is planned in the months following for those who have completed a full cycle. Diet will be discussed on this day using the “Let’s play healthy eating” tool, and will be attended by dietitians and doctors.


    Simultaneously, cooking classes will be organised for patients, to complete the full training cycle. The chefs at the Pasteur Clinic arrange educational workshops and assist the participants in preparing meals appropriate for their illness. View photos.

     This DVD won two awards in 2006 at the Deauville visual communications festival and at Entretiens de Bichat (a medical convention).

    Advice and recommendations, discussed in meetings, are given, such as the ten commandments for preventive care of foot complications.

    The foods included in the film on diet were used to create a card game for the workshop on diet.


    “Let’s play healthy eating” CARD game

    Designed based on 3 game rules, the initial goal of the game is to distinguish low-fat from high-fat foods or sweetened foods from non-sweetened foods. The players learn how to create a balanced meal and improve their knowledge about nutrition.

    The game is made up of 87 food cards identified with nutritional symbols, an unmarked board for positioning the cards, and an answer board and 24 question cards.
