Experienced in the management of insulin with pumps and sensors. He contributes, together with a first-class supportive team of diabetes educators and dietitians, to the excellent service at London Medical for type 1 diabetes.
While cognisant of guidelines he is modern in his approach, putting his patient’s health needs first and including them always in decisions about their treatment. He achieves excellent results and patient satisfaction with the emphasis on education and support. The Diabetes Care Plans make outstanding comprehensive diabetes management affordable.
In type 2 diabetes, the emphasis is on weight management, tight glucose control with attention to blood pressure and LDL suppression. He uses modern ways of assessing risk biochemically (with total LDL and small LDL particle numbers) and with imaging (carotid intima-media thickness, coronary calcium scoring and CT angiograms). Working at London Medical allows access to immediately available expertise for eyes, feet, cardiology, arteries, nutrition, and podiatry – all in one clinic.
Dr Abraham also sees patients with familial hyperlipidaemia and lipid disorders. He uses advanced NMR measurements of lipoprotein particle numbers and carotid intima-media thickness measurements. These help assess risk and treat according to global risk of a cardiovascular event. All risk factors, including smoking, hypertension and diabetes are optimised individually for each patient.
Dr Abraham advises industry and colleagues on the best standards of care and lectures on new treatments in diabetes. Ralph is an enthusiastic champion for the needs of people with diabetes.
