The diabetes department is a leading clinical unit with research links to the University of Cambridge through the Institute of Metabolic Medicine located on the CUH site. Multidisciplinary teams provide general and specialist diabetes care for both local and regional patients in the inpatient and outpatient setting.
Although diabetes may not be the primary reason for admission, being unwell can have an impact on the blood glucose levels of some patients. We assess and make recommendations to support these patients and their medical team to manage blood glucose levels in hospital. Sometimes patients without diabetes or previously undiagnosed diabetes also receive consultation from the team if there is a concern with blood glucose levels in hospital.
