Worried your weight?
Over the years, as the UK’s leading private diabetes centre, we’ve developed enormous expertise in nutrition and weight management, to help patients live better with that complex lifelong condition
Today, we apply that world-class expertise to providing tailor-made, state-of-the-art support and treatment for anyone wanting to lose weight and live more healthily. We have particular expertise in the field of childhood obesity.
Carrying excess weight can have serious health implications, increasing your risk of heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure and cancer, as well as diabetes.
But the good news is that losing even a small amount can make a big difference to your future health prospects.
In fact, research shows that losing just 5 – 10% of total body weight can have significant benefits, leading to improvement in glycaemic control, a reduction in blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
