Good diabetes care and management is an essential part of keeping healthy for people with diabetes. Understanding your blood glucose levels and knowing what your blood sugar levels mean is a key part of understanding your diabetes – as well as understanding the differences between hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia and their respective symptoms. We have a highly trained team to support our patients.
Asthma is a condition that affects your airways – the small tubes that carry air in and out of the lungs. The more you understand the condition, the better position you’re in to work out with your healthcare team how to manage it well. Managing it well means that asthma will affect your life as little as possible. We provide support through asthma clinics and reviews.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the name for a group of lung conditions that cause breathing difficulties. COPD is a common condition that mainly affects middle-aged or older adults who smoke. Many people do not realise they have it.
The breathing problems tend to get gradually worse over time and can limit your normal activities, although treatment can help keep the condition under control.
Appointments are run weekly. You will receive an invitation through the post from Child Health detailing when your appointment will be. Please ensure you bring your child’s red book to this appointment.
