Diabetes Treatment Limerick
Over 220,000 people in Ireland are living with Diabetes and it is said the average Diabetic has the condition for five years before being diagnosed.
We provide routine screening for and management of Diabetes at Ennis Road Medical Centre. We are also fortunate to have a visiting Diabetes Nurse Educator whom we would encourage our patients to make an appointment with if they are having trouble managing their diabetes. We can also arrange dietician and podiatry appointments for both our private and medical card holding patients. Diabetes Ireland has an excellent website with further information at www.diabetes.ie.
We would also encourage our diabetic patients to have regular specialised eye checks for diabetic related eye disease. The National Diabetic Retinal Screening Programme is a government funded screening programme for people with diabetes aged 12 years and older. more information can be found here http://www.diabeticretinascreen.ie

Our ability to provide general practice services on this day cannot be guaranteed at this point in time though we will endeavour to do so if safe. We are advised that UL hospitals group has cancelled all outpatients appointments but the Emergency department at University Hospital Limerick is open as normal and the local injury unit in St Johns will be open from 9am to 6pm.
