2, paediatric and gestational diabetes.

Patients come to us from all over the

world to benefit from our exceptional

expertise. The team can help identify

and alleviate the symptoms of diabetes

distress and there are dietitians to talk to

and even a bariatric surgeon. There are

packages available with ongoing support

for weight loss or weight management,

including the all-important psychological

support. All the clinicians have the ability

to provide email or phone support beyond

the clinic appointment.

Making a difference

Dr Abraham has been involved in diabetes

research and diabetes care for most of

his career. He says, "I am determined to

make a difference to the lives of people

living with diabetes. It is easier for us to

do that by being in private practice. We

can devote the time to cater for individual

needs. I see Type 1 diabetes in particular

as being an area of great need. There is

a lot out there to help, but do patients

get it at all, or what's right for them? Not

all our patients are well off, but they are

keen to keep on top of their diabetes. We

do outcome studies so we can report on

progress. A private clinic has the scope

for this kind of personalised medicine."

Dr Abraham has an unusual viewpoint

when it comes to the ubiquity of the HbA1c

measurement that sometimes seems to

be the be-all and end-all of diabetes care.

He says, "Everyone is glucose-centric

these days, but diabetes is more than

that. A 20-minute appointment would

only allow a discussion about glucose,

but we spend the time examining the

whole picture; it's not just a glucose

problem. Much of the stress of diabetes

comes with the sense of failure people

experience every day with 'wrong' blood

glucose tests. The fact is that many Type

1 diabetics are veterans of their own

condition; they know it far better than

their doctor does. And these veterans are

often very well-informed. It is challenging

to keep pace with sensor and insulin

pump technology. The learning curve

and learning time is expensive. Specialist

diabetes centres are vital, but there are

not enough of them."

Dr Abrahams is positive about the

future of diabetes care. "What's exciting

about diabetes care at the moment is

that it's getting better every day" he says,

"There's much more technology, it's

just a matter of translating that into real

practice."

Diabetes is a complex condition affecting all of the body,
