Diabetes Clinic

Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person’s blood glucose (sugar) levels to become too high. The amount of glucose in the blood is controlled by the hormone insulin that is produced by the pancreas. Insulin moves glucose out of the blood and into cells where it is broken down to produce an essential source of energy that fuels our bodies. If you have diabetes the body is unable to move glucose into your cells.

Diabetes is a complex and serious health hazard. You may need a wide range of specialist, highly personalised care and treatment either immediately or over time.   

Our expert diabetic consultants and specialist nurses provide support, advice and intensive management of diabetes, to help patients to lead a full life and reduce the risk of diabetes-related complications. 

The consultants and nurses work together as a team to support each of their diabetes patients with up-to-date clinical care, emotional support, ongoing education and supportive contact.

Managing diabetes requires a multi-faceted approach. We work as a team to help the patient understand diabetes, empowering and encouraging them to make their own choices. We also offer advice on how treatment can be tailored to each individual patient’s lifestyle. 

Type 1 diabetes is a lifelong condition that can significantly affect your health and well-being.

The unit will work with you to optimise your treatment regime, with access to innovative blood glucose monitors, cutting-edge insulin pumps, and state-of-the-art screening facilities to protect the health of your eyes, kidneys, and heart.

Type 2 diabetes is a common condition in which the body is resistant to the effects of the hormone insulin, making the levels of sugar in the blood too high. Diabetes can significantly affect your health, well-being, and life expectancy. 

A multidisciplinary team, including diabetologists, dieticians, podiatrists, and clinical nurse specialists, provide expert care, health screening, and support to help you stay healthy and live a full and active life.

Affects Sexual Life

Having diabetes affects much more than a person’s diet. It can impact every aspect of their life, including their sexual health. When a person has diabetes, their body cannot use insulin properly, and this can lead to high blood sugar levels. Over time, these can lead to complications such as nerve damage and cardiovascular problems. Both have implications for sexual health. If you have any Sexual related problem, book our Sexlogist Dr. Mithun Bhartia.
