Mirai Clinic specializes in treating
and managing diabetes mellitus. We have three core areas: treatment, education,
and research. Ｏur registered diabetes patients have reached 1200 (including 120
type 1 patients), and we regularly see 1000 diabetes patients per month. We have
three board-certified dialectologists, two of whom are Fellow of Japanese Society
of Internal Medicine, and one is also a Fellow of American College of Physician.
We also have large number of Japanese Clinical Diabetes
Educators (CDEJs), and CDEs in West Tokyo area (LCDEs).
We see local patients who have disorders regarding general internal medicine,
who seek home-based care, and who require annual health check-ups.
We have sufficient consulting physicians, and each of them is a board-certified
specialist in neurology, nephrology, cardiology (non-interventionist), and gastroenterology.
Everyone who seeks diabetes care is
a candidate at MIrai Clinic. Treatment is both for newly diagnosed patients and
those with diabetes complications. We have large experience in treating and managing
type 1 diabetes patients: from multiple insulin injections to CSII (insulin pump).
We are also experienced in treating type 2 diabetes using multiple insulin injections
and/or having multiple medical conditions. We refer patients who need hospitalization
to near-by general hospitals.
We are a member of the
West Tokyo Diabetes Association (founded in 1999 as Non Profit
Organization), and work as task forces at meetings an educational
courses. The West Tokyo Diabetes Association gives accreditation
for LCDEs, and we support this activity. At our clinic, we provide
diabetes educational courses, gymnastic classes, coking classes
to support daily activities of diabetes patients.
In the clinical research,
we have been conducting clinical studies especially regarding type
1 patients, and presented at national and international diabetes
