Our Community Diabetes Team supports people with type 2 diabetes in managing their condition to the best of their ability. People may be referred to the service for a variety of reasons:
- There is a concern that their long-term blood glucose control is too high
- They might need a new form of diabetes medications
- They might be experiencing repeated episodes of low blood glucose (hypos)
- They may need help altering their diet to control their glucose
The Community Diabetes Service offers support by providing community clinics throughout Gloucestershire, home visits to the housebound or nursing home patients and they will see patients at their own surgeries when appropriate.
Community clinics are held in Gloucester, Cheltenham, Stroud, Dursley, Forest of Dean, Cirencester and North Cotswolds.
