Meet Mudit Jain, MD
DIABETES AND THYROID CENTER OF EXCELLENCE
Dr. Mudit Jain founded the Diabetes & Thyroid Care Center of Excellence in 1999. He has devoted himself to the care of patients with diabetes, thyroid and other endocrine disorders and is recognized as a leading endocrinologist in Broward County. With the addition of a full-time dietitian, the development of an ADA-recognized Diabetes Self Education program, the added support of a physician assistant, and his ECNU certification, we are set up to provide the best care for our patients
Unlike many diseases, diabetes affects the whole life of an individual and requires a multifaceted approach to its management.
Appropriate and effective treatment provided early on by a specialist, along with proper patient education and regular follow-up, can ensure a healthy and fulfilling life free of the potentially crippling complications of diabetes. Even if complications have set in, proper management can prevent or delay their progression, promoting longevity and quality of life.
Superior Diabetes Management: Every diabetic is unique with his/her own pathophysiology and social setting. We at DTCC recognize and respect the individuality of each patient, which enables us to offer more effective and personalized care.
Insulin Pump Therapy: We offer and support the use of insulin pumps in appropriate patients. Dr. Jain has many years of experience in managing patients on insulin pumps and uses the latest in insulin pump technology.
Education is the key to diabetes management. Dr. Jain and his dietitian are both Certified Diabetes Educators (C.D.E.).
Important areas emphasized are:
● Dietary counseling that is practical and tailored to patients’ lifestyle and capacity
● Glucose monitoring, goals of control, management of hypoglycemia
● Insight into how diabetes medications work and time-action profile of insulins
● Role of physical activity, exercise & weight loss
Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM): Products like Dexcom and Libre CGMs are revolutionizing diabetes care. We prescribe them for our patients as insurance coverage and affordability permits. CGMs not only help patients forego frequent fingersticks but also give patients necessary insights for insulin dose adjustment.
Dr. Jain has received the distinction of being ECNU certified. The Endocrine Certification in Neck Ultrasound is awarded by the American Association of Clinical Endocrinology to recognize individuals who have met the highest standards of knowledge and competency in performing neck ultrasounds and ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration biopsies for the diagnosis and treatment of thyroid and parathyroid disorders. Our patients get their thyroid ultrasounds and biopsies conducted by the trusted hands of their endocrinologist and do not have to go to another provider for these procedures.
Full Time Registered Dietitian on Site
Our full-time Registered Dietitian (RD) and Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE) provides in-house guidance to our patients for meal planning, carbohydrate counting, and lifestyle modifications. She provides individual and group sessions and works closely with Dr. Jain to help manage patients’ diabetes and reach their health care goals.
I have been diagnosed with diabetes since 1985. I have been treated by more than five doctors. Dr. Jain has helped me the most in controlling my condition and maintaining the best possible health.
I found Dr. Jain both informative and knowledgeable in my visits to his office. I have had diabetes for many years and most of that time it was not in control. Through Dr. Jain’s efforts and of course mine I have a lot better handle on it. His staff are bright and cheerful to talk to and are extremely helpful. They use their knowledge to make my visit much better experience.
I was afraid to go to a dietician because I thought I would be embarrassed about my poor habits and forced to give up foods I loved. Instead of judgment, I received gentle encouragement and the knowledge and tools I needed to completely change my lifestyle. I have lost 40 pounds and feel so much better. Kirti is so nice and makes me feel like she is on my side and will always be there for me.
