Diabetes

The diabetes team offer a complete service to people with all types of diabetes and problems that can be linked with this. We care for patients with type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes with specific issues (e.g. assessment for insulin, weight problems, kidney or foot problems), other types of diabetes (e.g. due to pancreatitis, genetic causes, cystic fibrosis).

We provide joint specialist clinics for patients with diabetes and retinopathy, diabetes and foot problems, diabetes in pregnancy and pregnancy planning in diabetes. In addition, we have a specialised service for people with diabetes picked up in childhood transferring to the adult clinic, those on insulin pumps, and those with diabetic nephropathy. 
We provide an education package for those with type 1 diabetes which includes information on dose adjustment for normal eating (DAFNE).
Clinics are held at Musgrove Park Hospital, Chard, Bridgwater and Minehead Hospitals.
We also provide an Endocrine and Weight management service.
