Type 2 diabetes is one of the world’s most common long-term health problems. It’s a condition that makes sugar levels in the blood too high.

Type 2 diabetes is linked with obesity, inactivity, and having a family history of the disease.

Diabetes affects the way the body deals with energy from food. When we eat, carbohydrates are broken down into glucose.

The glucose is absorbed into the bloodstream and distributed to cells around the body to provide energy.  The hormone insulin controls the levels of sugar in the blood.

Insulin acts like a chemical key. It unlocks the cells so that the body's organs, muscles, and tissues can burn glucose for energy, then safely store any surplus. 

If you have type 2 diabetes, the body either doesn't respond properly to the insulin circulating, or doesn't produce enough insulin for its needs. Glucose builds up in the blood, and the cells are starved of the energy they need to function.

If you have diabetes, you may feel tired, thirsty, and need to pass more water than usual.

Over time, diabetes can damage the body, increasing your risk of having serious problems with your eyes, kidneys, heart, and nerves.

The London Clinic offers holistic care for the control of type 2 diabetes. The Diabetes Unit provides customised treatment tailored to each individual's needs in a comfortable, supportive, and stress-free environment. 

The diabetes team will work with you to help you understand your condition, take control of your diabetes, and protect your health.
