Manage your diabetes with confidence
Careful glucose monitoring is key to controlling blood sugar levels, maintaining health and reducing the complications of diabetes. The expert professionals at The London Diabetes Centre offer the very latest technologies and treatments for diabetes. The multidisciplinary team can recommend an up-to-date device or recommend a continuous glucose monitor, so that you can actively manage your diabetes simply and with confidence.
Regular glucose testing will help you learn how food, stress, exercise and other factors affect your sugar levels. This can help you and your specialist team adjust treatment, plan meals and keep your diabetes under control.
Technology is making understanding and analysing glucose readings much easier. Apps on smartphones or watches can help you keep an eye on your glucose trends. The London Diabetes Centre also encourages patients to work with the diabetes team to improve their control, by sharing glucose readings using Diasend, a web-based diabetes management system.
In addition to monitoring your own glucose levels, the specialist diabetes team at The London Diabetes Centre will arrange an HbA1c blood test every three to six months. It provides a picture of what your average blood glucose has been over the previous few months. The test is always available in our clinic, with results ready in less than within ten minutes. The team aim for a result of below 6.5%, a level that will protect your health and reduce the risk of diabetes complications.
