We run specialist clinics for those who are newly diagnosed with diabetes to talk through diet, medications and how to stay healthy with diabetes. We also do routine check-ups with all our diabetic patients to monitor blood sugar control, cholesterol levels, kidney function and blood pressure. These clinics are an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have about your diabetes and check there are no complications.
We recommend annual eye checks with your local optician to check for any damage to the back of the eye and to measure eye pressures for all our patients with diabetes. These are important to catch any signs of potential sight damaging disease early.
For further advice about diabetes we recommend the Diabetes UK website or ask your doctor/nurse.
