Clinical Diabetes Center

As a certified facility of the German Diabetes Association the Clinical Diabetes Center grants the highest possible standard of diagnosis and therapy through interdisciplinary problem solving. Specialists of various clinics at the Contilia health campus in Essen develop individual treatment programs for all forms of diabetes and their secondary diseases, and for difficult constellations with multiple diseases – also in psycho-social care.

The center has the threefold approbation for the medical treatment of diabetics type 1, type 2 and children, whose treatment is adjusted to the requirements according to age. There are individual treatments on offer for diabetes diseases that occur within pregnancy (gestational diabetes). As diabetes may be the cause of illnesses of the heart or the kidneys, patients are also well attended to in cardiological and nephric respect.
