Professor Stefan Bornstein: Individual treatment for diabetes – based on the latest research

The Medical Department and Clinic III at the Carl Gustav Carus University Hospital in Dresden is one of the leading diabetes centres in Germany. It currently has the countryʼs only active islet cell transplantation programme and is home to Europeʼs first chair for diabetes prevention.

Professor Bornstein, an estimated 300 million people around the world suffer from diabetes. And the number is set to rise dramatically. What does diabetes mean for those affected?

Professor Bornstein: Permanently elevated blood sugar levels are the key indicator for this metabolic disorder. There are two different types: diabetes mellitus type 1, which mostly affects children or younger adults, and diabetes mellitus type 2, which is often brought on by a poor diet and lack of exercise. High blood sugar causes long-term damage to the blood vessels, nerves, heart and kidneys. Diabetes also limits how well people can function physically. Serious complications of diabetes include renal damage and even organ failure, heart attacks, strokes, loss of sight and diabetic foot syndrome. The latter often leads to amputation. Four million people a year die of diabetes-related causes.

What do you offer in Dresden for people with diabetes?

Professor Bornstein: Our clinic is one of the leading centres in Europe for the treatment and research of diabetes mellitus type 1 and type 2 and their related diseases. We have one of the largest outpatient insulinpump clinics in Germany, with room for 400 patients. The islet cell transplantation programme in Dresden was launched in 2008. The transplantation of insulin-producing cells, known as islet cells, can greatly improve quality of life for people with type 1 diabetes, who, despite treatment with medication, suffer from severe fluctuations in blood sugar levels. These islet cells are taken from a donor organ, the pancreas, meticulously prepared in the laboratory and finally injected into the recipientʼs liver. Only a small abdominal incision is required for this. After transplantation to the liver, the cells soon begin to produce insulin. Dresdenʼs university hospital is currently the only active centre in Germany that offers this treatment.

Around 30,000 patients every year come to your clinic for treatment. What makes it so special?

Professor Bornstein: We offer personalised treatment strategies designed to provide long-term solutions for the problems caused by diabetes. We also offer therapies, based on the latest research, to people who are already suffering from one or more of the secondary diseases resulting from diabetes, such as diabetic foot syndrome, vascular disorders and renal failure. This expertise and this service is provided by more than 200 doctors, nurses, technicians and administrative staff.

Where do your patients come from?

Professor Bornstein: From the federal state of Saxony and from all over Germany. We have lots of international patients and we are, after all, an international team ourselves. Many of our patients come from Russia, the Middle East and the USA as well as from other countries in Europe. There are no language difficulties, because any foreign patients who donʼt speak English can be looked after by native speakers.

And how important is research at your clinic?

Professor Bornstein: Very important. We see healing and research as two sides of the same coin, which enables our patients to continue receiving treatment based on the latest scientific findings. We work internationally in close collaboration with leading global institutions and researchers.

Is it true that Dresden is home to the first chair for the prevention of diabetes?

Professor Bornstein: Yes. Diabetes is a disease with the potential for severe complications. Prevention, i.e. stopping people from getting diabetes in the first place, remains the best form of treatment. We offer special programmes and therapies designed to identify the disease in its early stages, delay its onset and possibly even prevent it.

Blutenfest des Rotes Moselweinbergpfirsich


We hebben éven moeten oefenen, maar na een tijdje rolde Rote Moselweinbergpfirsich vanzelf uit onze mond. Toch kan je in Cochem ook gewoon Rud Peesche zeggen, het plaatselijke dialect voor deze kleine perzik met haar robijnrode vruchtvlees die overal in de Moezelvallei groeit. Terwijl de wijngaarden er nog kaal bijliggen, zijn de roze bloemen van de Moezel-Wijnbergperzik al een fleurige voorbode van de lente. Goed nieuws voor de plaatselijke wijnboeren dus, maar ook voor al wie dol is op perziken, want dan wordt er in Cochem smakelijk gefeest.




Voor de ene is het een stukje Frankrijk in Duitsland, voor de andere is het een stukje Duitsland dat ook in Frankrijk niet zou misstaan. Wij houden het bij typisch Duits met een stevige Franse twist: Saarland. De kleinste Duitse deelstaat ging een paar keer over en weer tussen beide landen, was tweemaal op zichzelf en werd in 1957 definitief bij Duitsland ingelijfd. Het resultaat is een grensoverschrijdende kruisbestuiving van savoir-vivre en savoir-faire die zich vooral in de lokale gastronomie laat gelden. Wij trokken in Saarland letterlijk van de ene rijk gedekte tafel naar de andere, gingen er tafeltoeren en lieten ons galant overtuigen van het feit dat je van 'een schone tafel' wél kan eten.


Crazy SB Waschsalon

Crazy SB Waschsalon

Quando estamos viajando, nada como ter uma lavanderia perto para as horas de aperto. Não tem como não notar essa lavanderia toda "modernosa". Crazy SB Waschsalon chama a atenção por suas centenas de meias penduradas. Uma decoração perfeita para o ambiente. Eu não cheguei a lavar nenhuma roupa na minha estádia em Dresden, mas se ficasse mais uns dias, teria voltado lá de certeza. Fica na Louisenstraße 6, aberto todos os dias das 06h - 23h.


Travel Bookshop

Travel Bookshop - para os apaixonados por viagem

As coisas mais legais, sem dúvidas eu encontrei em Neustadt. É a região mais alternativa e legal de Dresden. Foi lá que eu vi uma das Lojas de Livros de Viagem mais legais. É aquela loja/livraria/papelaria que você vai querer comprar tudo. Passei uma boa hora lá dentro, folheando (porque ler em alemão, nem em sonho!) todos os guias, livros. Comprei uns postais lindos. Bobeei por não ter comprado uns mapas antigos, eram lindos.




Para ter uma vista incrível de Dresden, vale muito a pena pegar o monorail em Loschwitz. Além de ver a cidade, você ainda terá uma vista privilegiada da Ponte Azul - Blaueswunder.



1000 e 1 passagem

Em Neustadt tem a Kunsthofphpassage, que é uma passagem incrível. Ela tem vários prédios "temáticos". O azul por exemplo quando chove, a água nos canos vira música. Fora os prédios, ainda tem várias lojas bacanas e cafés charmosos para você aproveitar. #youngDresden #mustsees #shopping #cafés


Obras incríveis

Albertinum: um museu de arte moderna de 125 anos, que foi reaberto em 2010, após uma reforma de 51 milhões de euros. A coleção de retratos começa com um dos pintores alemães mais românticos, Caspar David Friedrich, e termina com seu artista vivo mais famoso, Gerhard Richter, sendo que ambos passaram a infância em Dresden. Você vai encontrar desde a Bailarina de Degas, a Monet, Manet, Rodin, Van Gogh. A entrada Vista 10€


Zwinger Palace

O Chateau de Versailles de Dresden

O Zwinger Palace é um dos melhores exemplos da arquitetura barroca tardia na Alemanha. Construído entre 1710 e 1728 pelo arquiteto Pöppelmann, o Palácio Zwinger foi usado para grandes festas e torneios. Hoje, o complexo barroco de pavilhões, galerias e pátios interiores é a casa de grandes museus e obras. A Madonna Sistina de Rafael você encontrará lá. O acervo de Porcelana tambem é belíssimo. O Arsenal também é muito interessante se você curte trajes e armas. Se você não quiser entrar em nenhum museu, vá pelo menos para andar pelos jardins e admirar o "Kronentor", que é o portão com a coroa.
