Finding the right balance
What is involved?
We understand that diabetes can be life changing. Early diagnosis and careful management is important to ensure proper treatment and reduce the risk of serious and long-term complications. A late or misdiagnosis of diabetes could be caused by the failure of a GP to refer you to hospital. Or, if the hospital fails to carry out appropriate tests, follow up your results, or manage your condition properly.
A late diagnosis of diabetes, resulting in inadequate management of blood sugar levels, can result in complications such as loss of peripheral sensation, increased risk of infection/gangrene, vision loss and blindness, cardiovascular disease, kidney failure, diabetic ketoacidosis and ultimately death.
