If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, you probably already know the main symptoms, which include:
- Frequent urination
- Blurred vision
- Sexual difficulties
- Change in weight
- Pains and tingles in extremities
But what is the likely course of your condition, over time? And how do you know if you would benefit from our unique approach to diabetes care?
Diabetes may often exist without symptoms, which is why many people don’t realise they have the condition. So when you do experience symptoms, it usually indicates that your glucose levels are quite high.
The need for long term care and support
Over time diabetes can cause complications in the body – affecting the eyes, nerves, kidneys, heart and blood vessels. (See Long term complications, for more detailed information.)
The consequences can be severe, debilitating, and expensive to treat. They may even be life-threatening. So whether you’re diagnosed with diabetes, or have had it for some time, you need the very best support, advice and ongoing care.
At The London Diabetes Centre, that’s exactly what our team of diabetes specialists aims to provide.
