Both sisters have the diabetes nurse specialist certificates.
The diabetic clinic is for education, support, monitoring and treatment of patients with diabetes.
We encourage all of our diabetics to attend the diabetic clinic at least annually and for some, more frequently, as their condition dictates.
The clinic is run in close liaison with the doctors. There is good evidence that regular attendance at clinic and monitoring and education of patients regarding their condition reduces the risk of complications. By controlling symptoms well, the impact of diabetes on everyday life can be significantly reduced.
Many patients have diabetes which can be controlled by diet alone or with medication. Some patients require insulin. The insulin dependant patients are usually seen, at least initially, in hospital outpatients. See practice Information pack.
From the diabetic clinic you may be directed to the chiropodist, dietician or optician to obtain more specialist information on various aspects of your care.
We strongly advise all diabetics to have an annual ‘flu jab’. They should also be immunised against pneumococcus.
