Samedaydoctor private GP clinics have expertise in dealing with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.
In addition to carrying out full blood and urine testing we organise assessment of heart and kidney function, manage blood pressure and diet and arrange neurological and ophthalmic assessments. We are able to initiate and manage insulin therapy and teach self testing for home blood glucose testing.
Dietary management is important for all types of diabetes and we are supported by dieticians who can advise on weight loss (particularly for type 2 diabetes) if appropriate. Appointment at samedaydoctor clinics can be made by phone or email. Our aim is to manage diabetes successfully and to reduce the incidence of long term complications.
Our experienced clinicians can assess blood glucose levels, glycosylated haemoglobin, kidney and liver function cholesterol and triglycerides and cardiac risk as well as to the full dietary assessment including balancing carbohydrates, fats and proteins. We can advise on appropriate diets for type I and type II diabetes.
We have access to consultant endocrinologists who can also advise us on other matters relating to diabetes and its complications and we have clinicians with experience in changing insulin therapy and tailoring it to the needs of the individual and their own personal exercise and dietary programs.
We have a number of patients who consult us on a long term basis for the management of their condition and we have treatment plans tailored to the individual to ensure the best control of blood sugar and the prevention of the long-term complications of diabetes.
