Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes your blood sugar level to become too high. Endocrinology is the diagnosis and treatment of problems caused by the glands that produce hormones to regulate your metabolism. This can include diabetes, nutritional disorders and sexual problems.

In addition to our clinics which cover diabetes management, you can also attend group sessions which explore education and new treatments.
You will only be able to see our specialist nurses or dietitians in a clinic setting, if you receive your main diabetes care from our hospital team.
Attending a clinic
You should report to reception when you arrive at your clinic. You will then be seen by a clinic nurse who will check:
- your height
- your weight
- your blood pressure
- the details of your last eye screening and foot examination
You will see a consultant during your appointment but will also have the opportunity to see the diabetes specialist nurse, dietitian or podiatrist.
There may be medical students present during your clinic, but you have the right to see your consultant alone.
