Type 2 Diabetes: a 360° approach to successful management

By far the commonest form of diabetes, type 2 is often a “silent” disease, going undetected for many years. Diagnosed or not, it poses serious threats to long-term health and wellbeing – including greatly increasing a patient’s risk of a heart attack or stroke.

At the London Diabetes Centre, we have world-class expertise in the intensive management of glucose, cholesterol and blood pressure, which is crucial to preventing damage to key organs such as the heart, eyes and kidneys.

Experts in weight management

We are also experienced in developing personalised weight management programmes, another vitally important aspect of reducing the risks that come with type 2 diabetes.

But, above all, what sets us apart is all-round, 360° approach to helping you live as healthily as possible with diabetes.

Helping you learn to manage your condition

Our specialist team of consultants, dietitians and nurses will work closely with you, to both keep you motivated you and help you learn how you can best manage your condition – from using our advanced Flash Glucose Monitoring System, to making important changes in your lifestyle.

From our long experience, we know that the more you can learn, and the more fully you can understand your condition, the better you’ll be able to live with it.

Type 2 diabetes: why the London Diabetes Centre?

Why choose us to help you learn how to manage your type 2 diabetes, and live successfully with the condition? Quite simply, because no other private clinic can provide all the specialist expertise, care and support that you need, under one roof.

We are unique in having a specialist interest and expertise in heart disease and stroke prevention (by keeping blood pressure and LDL cholesterol low), weight management (with our SmartWeight programmes and the pioneering use of drugs) and diabetes, all available in one centre.

We can show that our patients do improve in terms of well-being, and demonstrate useful outcome measures such as weight loss, reduction of protein leakage in the urine or achieve targets with LDL cholesterol or glucose measurement.

Many patients with diabetes have sleep apnoea or a fatty liver – danger signs for increased risk or early heart disease, but often ignored until serious symptoms develop. We check for these before they become a problem.

Our joined-up, 360° approach to type 2 diabetes care depends on the skills and close collaboration of our world-class multidisciplinary team, which includes:

•  Dietitians

•  Diabetes Educators

•  Ultrasonographers

•  Cardiac technicians

•  Respiratory physicians

•  Retinal specialists

•  Chiropodists

•  Hepatologists
