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.
