Helping people affected by NHS Negligence. Call us today for free impartial advice.
Diabetes is a significant and growing problem in the United Kingdom as the population ages and more people become overweight. More than 1.5m suffer from the disease and it is estimated to account for 10% of the overall NHS budget in the UK.
It is also a major killer. Diabetes is the underlying cause of a range of serious or fatal conditions, including heart disease, stroke and kidney disease and can also lead to blindness and limb amputations.
Symptoms Include Thirst, Tiredness, Frequent Urination, Blurred Vision and Weight Loss
If these problems are to be avoided, early diagnosis is essential. Symptoms include thirst, tiredness, frequent urination, blurred vision and weight loss but in too many cases, patients can have the condition for years before it is picked up by doctors. If you have become seriously ill or have a family member affected by the late diagnosis of diabetes, you may have a claim for medical negligence compensation and should seek expert medical negligence legal advice as soon as possible.
