Durdana Kisat Imran
Director of Healthcare
With a passion for Diabetes stemming from personal loss, this dedicated Medical Assistant has gained extensive knowledge in caring for patients with the disease and preventing complications. KDO offers her a platform to create awareness and educate individuals.
As a clinical Endocrinologist with 20 years of experience, I have witnessed the devastating effects of diabetes. With one in three people expected to have this chronic disease by 2050, prevention is crucial. Education, environmental changes, and a healthy lifestyle are key factors in controlling and preventing diabetes.
My personal experiences with diabetes have fueled my passion for improving care and outcomes for those affected by the disease. After watching several family members suffer from diabetes and its complications, including my own father who passed away before surgery could occur, I am more determined than ever to prevent such tragedies.
Join me in this mission to prevent diabetes and its complications. Together, we can make a difference and prevent others from experiencing the same heartbreak.
