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:
• Diabetes Educators
• Cardiac technicians
• Respiratory physicians
• Retinal specialists
