Harley Street Diabetes Clinics
Diabetology is the Treatment and analysis of Diabetes Mellitus and is a section in the field of Endocrinology. Diabetes Mellitus is the most common condition to be referred to a diabetologist and this is diagnosed when a person is unable to produce enough of their own, naturally occurring insulin. This results in high blood sugar level and they require monitoring and control through their diet and sometimes medication.
After six years of undergraduate medical training these experts received focused training in the field of endocrinology and are members of the Royal College of Physicians, specialising in diabetology.
The most referred problems to Diabetes clinics are those affected and analysed by endocrinology. Diabetes is the most referred, however any deficiency or problem with the production or regulation of hormones such as hypothyroidism or obesity can be referred in this way.
Those who contact a diabetes clinic are those with diabetes or who suffer with problems such as Retinopathy, Neuropathy or nephropathy as a result of the condition and are dealt with by an endocrinologist.
