Diabetes mellitus is a lifelong condition caused by a lack, or insufficiency of insulin. Insulin is a hormone- a substance of vital importance that is made by your pancreas.

There are two main categories of diabetes:

  • Type 1 Diabetes tends to occur in childhood or early adult life, and always requires treatment with insulin injections. It is caused by the body’s own immune system destroying the insulin-making cells(beta-cells) of the pancreas
  • Type 2 diabetes usually develops slowly in adulthood. It is progressive and can sometimes be treated with diet and exercise, but more often Type 2 diabetes may require antidiabetic medicine and/or insulin injections.

Visits to the practice that are related to the pregnancy are free of charge once the application for maternity and infant care scheme is completed. Ideally you should visit the practice to see one of the doctors as soon as you discover you are pregnant. You will then be referred to your local maternity hospital. Subsequently your visits will alternate between the hospital and GP. Mother is entitled to a post-natal six week check up and baby will be entitled to a two week and six check-up under this scheme.

An ECG (electrocardiogram) records the electrical activity of your heart at rest. It provides information about your heart rate and rhythm, and shows if there is enlargement of the heart due to high blood pressure (hypertension) or evidence of a previous heart attack (myocardial infarction). However, it does not show whether you have asymptomatic blockages in your heart arteries or predict your risk of a future heart attack. The resting ECG is different from a stress or exercise ECG or cardiac imaging test.

You may need an ECG test if you have risk factors for heart disease such as high blood pressure, or symptoms such as palpitations or chest pain.


Blood Pressure Monitoring (BPM) gives a recording of your blood pressure over a 24 hour period, while you move around, living your normal daily life. It uses a small digital blood pressure machine that is attached to a belt around your body and which is connected to a cuff around your upper arm. It is small enough that you can go about your normal daily life and even sleep with it on.By measuring your blood pressure at regular intervals over 24 hours, your doctor is able to get clear pictures of how your blood pressure changes throughout the day and night, including the normal nocturnal dip. There are a number of reasons why your doctor might suggest this test:

  • To find out if your high blood pressure readings in the clinic are much higher than they are away from the clinic (called the ‘white coat effect’)
  • To see how well your medicines are working, to make sure they are controlling your blood pressure through the day.
  • To see if your blood pressure stays high at night. If this is the case, they may need to change or adjust your medicines.
