The Review of Long Term Conditions
Here are a list of reviews that all patients must have if they have the following long term condition:
|Condition||How often do I need to be reviewed? What is involved in the review? Where is the review done? and by who?|
These are usually done every 12 months if your diabetes is well controlled. We will review every 6 months if adequately controlled, and every 3 months if poorly controlled.
For a diabetic review you will need to have the following checks: blood pressure, foot pulses, weight, medication. We would also organise for you to have your bloods checked (including HbA1c), we would ask about your insulin medication or blood glucose levels (if applicable). Once we have your blood results back we would amend medication if needed.
You will also need to organise your diabetic retinal screening once a year.
