Diabetes Service

  • Diabetes occurs when there is too much glucose (sugar) in the blood. 
  • This happens because:
    • the pancreas stops producing insulin (Type 1 diabetes)
    • or the insulin produced is not effective in transporting glucose from the blood to the body's cells (Type 2 diabetes)
  • ​Diabetes can cause serious health problems (damage to the eyes, heart, kidneys, nerves, feet) if it is not well controlled. 
  • Good diabetes care can reduce the risk of developing these complications.
