Those with diabetes are two and a half times more likely to have a heart attack and twice as likely to have a stroke than a non-diabetic. Complications surrounding diabetes can occur as a result of substandard care from a healthcare professional, which ultimately could have been prevented with better practice. Medical negligence can occur through the treatment of diabetes when a healthcare professional does not provide an appropriate quality of care. This most commonly happens when diabetes is misdiagnosed, if there is a delay in diagnosis or if treatment and care following diagnosis is not properly carried out. If you or a loved one has suffered from complications of diabetes that could have been prevented, you may be entitled to make a diabetes compensation claim.
Diabetes is a lifelong disease, affecting 1 in 15 people in England. Over time, having too much glucose in your blood can have significant consequences and so diabetics need to carefully manage and control their condition through medication and good care.

If complications develop after a diabetes diagnosis, it is the medical staff’s duty to provide an acceptable standard of care. Sadly, this doesn’t always happen. Around 80% of amputations in diabetics are brought on by a poorly treated foot ulcer, which could have been avoided.
