"Life-changing Diabetes Service Mansfield."

About: Mansfield & Ashfield / Mid Notts community diabetes

(as the patient),

I have had diabetes since 2011. I have had various medications for years with what seemed like little progress.

Since late 2020 and into 2021 I have seen a specialist diabetic nurse. At last I had great advice, a dramatic change in medication and someone who cared about me.

Since having injections weekly and great advice from a specialist I have made substantial progress. My health has improved quite dramatically and I have lost some weight and look forward to losing more.

Apart from the changes noted above, the key was meeting someone who not only knew what advice to give but someone who cared about me. This quite personal care was just brilliant and life changing. I can't thank them enough.

Thank you for your message. It is so lovely to hear of positive outcomes and that our staff have made such an improvement to your diabetes management.

I will, of course, pass this on to our specialist nurses.

Thank you again.
