About the service

The National Severe Insulin Resistance Service provides services for investigation and management into severe insulin resistance and associated conditions in both adults and children at the Wolfson Diabetes and Endocrine Clinic within the Institute of Metabolic Science.

There is a weekly multidisciplinary clinic which consists of a consultant, nurse specialist,  dietitian, genetic counsellor in some cases, and paediatric endocrine consultant for children (up to the age of 18).

The aim of the service is to provide diagnostic, therapeutic and educational support for both patients and their local clinical carers, and to establish and disseminate evidence-based recommendations for the therapy of this severe group of conditions.
