This is a disease where the body cannot control blood sugars.
We see our diabetes patients 6 or 12 monthly. However, if we change your medication we may see you 3 monthly. We test your blood sugars, cholesterol, liver, kidneys, thyroid and full blood count. We also require a urine sample once a year. We check your feet and you will be invited to have retinal screening (photographing the back of your eye) annually.
