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
