Diabetes Risks

Diabetes is described as the’ fastest growing threat to our nation’s health’ and we appreciate there is a great deal of media coverage concerning the condition as as medical professionals face the impact of this epidemic. The London Diabetes Centre offers clear and transparent advice and care for people diagnosed with diabetes and also for people who may be worried about their diabetes status.

Diabetes is a fast-growing disease and has been described as the greatest threat to our nation’s health. Numbers of those diagnosed with diabetes have soared over the last 20 years. Most of this increase arises from type 2 diabetes. Government estimates suggest that almost a million people actually have type 2 diabetes and don’t even realise it, yet the risks to their health are serious.

Diabetes is a complex and demanding life-long condition but it should not prevent you from living a normal, healthy life. Having diabetes presents unique problems as it is profoundly affected by when and what you eat, by your activity level and by stress. That is why good care relies heavily on education, support and consultant experience – factors that set the London Diabetes Centre apart from other diabetes clinics and which underpin our success.


We have developed options for your initial visit that are straight forward to understand, allow access to the leading experts in the field of diabetes with no hidden charges. At any time our expert team is available for you to call or email and we are happy to talk through these options or any level of bespoke care you may be interested in.
