Diabetic Watch

We have a specially trained Nurse Orla dedicated to dealing with our diabetic patients. There is a high rate of diabetes in Ireland. There are two main types of diabetes, each with similar symptoms.

The diabetic programme is a specialised clinic which our patients attend two or three times a year.

We also refer patients for eye and foot care on an annual basis. It is a free service for our patients.

Common symptoms of diabetes include:

• Frequent passing of water Urination

• Being excessively thirsty

• Being unusually hungry

• Unusual weight loss

• Increased tiredness or fatigue
