Endocrinologists diagnose and treat hormone imbalances. Our multidisciplinary team includes consultants, nurses, dietitians, a psychotherapist and a podiatrist.
Hormones are substances that help to control activities in your body. Different types of hormones control reproduction, metabolism, growth and development.
The glands that make up the endocrine system include the thyroid, parathyroid, pancreas, ovaries, testes, adrenal, pituitary and hypothalamus.
In addition to our general diabetes and endocrinology clinics, we provide sub-specialty and multi-disciplinary clinics including:
Please bring a list of all your current tablets and medicines with you.
If you have diabetes and are monitoring your blood sugar levels at home, please remember to bring your records with you to all your clinic appointments.
If you are coming to the Diabetes Clinic for an appointment with the doctor, please bring a urine sample with you for testing.
If you have been given a form for a blood test, please try to get this done 1 to 2 weeks before your appointment.
If you are not able to attend your appointment, please phone or e-mail to cancel and/or re-schedule it.
The diabetes and endocrinology service is provided at The Royal Sussex County Hospital andThe Princess Royal Hospital.
