Another special feature is the Diabetes Pregnancy unit which functions to improve patient care, maintenance of the registry for gestational diabetes, and caters to the special needs of high-risk pregnancies associated with diabetes.

The Department also has a functioning Diabetes Neuro clinic rendering services for people with diabetic neuropathies and a variety of other associated neurological problems.
