Genetic diabetes clinic at Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals.

 

A small minority of people have diabetes due to a known underlying genetic cause.  It is important to recognise this since these unusual forms of diabetes may need to be treated in a more specific manner.  There may also be important implications for other family members.

 

A genetic diabetes clinic is held monthly at Guy’s Hospital. This clinic is for the investigation and treatment of people with diabetes where there is a known, or suspected underlying genetic cause. It is run by doctors and nurses from the diabetes department and the genetics department at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals.
