Worried about your child's diabetes?
When your child is diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, it can be difficult to know which way to turn. They will need a lifetime of expert care to maintain their health and prevent complications. Many parents are frightened for the future, but the specialist diabetic team at The London Diabetes Centre can help. The expert professionals are dedicated to helping children with diabetes, and their parents, learn how to manage their condition successfully and safeguard their health.
Diabetes is a condition that requires careful control to stay well and reduce long-term complications. The expert professionals at The London Diabetes Centre offer cutting-edge technologies and treatments for diabetes, to make it easier for children and parents to control sugar levels.
We develop individualised care plans for children with diabetes. As well as education these often include the latest continuous glucose monitors to reduce finger-prick testing and improve sugar monitoring. Insulin pumps are often prescribed to provide more flexibility around meals, reduced risk of hypos and more stable blood glucose levels.
Many of the latest monitors can be monitored and downloaded remotely, so that parents can keep an eye on progress, for added reassurance.
