Diabetes Misdiagnosis – Can I make a claim?

Being diagnosed with diabetes is an extremely stressful and life-changing experience. Diabetes needs to be diagnosed in a good time, and it needs to be treated as soon as possible. Sadly, the most common type of negligence claim related to diabetes is a misdiagnosis, which can lead to some severe complications. If you have suffered from misdiagnosis or late diagnosis of your condition, we highly advise you to contact one of our experienced solicitors at Solicitors On Your Side.

Complication from misdiagnosis 

Diabetes, whether type 1 or 2 can be an extremely serious and life-changing condition. If you have been affected by a misdiagnosis of diabetes, we highly advise that you contact one of our experienced solicitors at Solicitors On your Side now, to get the highest compensation for the damages that you have faced.

When a patient visits their GP due to any symptoms they may be facing, it is the medical professional’s duty of care to ensure that they find out what the issue may be and how to resolve it in the best possible way. Diabetes usually has quite distinct symptoms but can be misdiagnosed. With type 1 diabetes, it must be diagnosed as soon as possible as it cannot be treated by altering your food intake, and medication is necessary.

Symptoms include:

  • Thirst
  • Tiredness
  • Frequent urination
  • Blurred vision
  • Weight loss

If there is a delay in the treatment of diabetes, it can lead to serious complications to the patient’s health. It is crucial to implement a new lifestyle as soon as possible when diagnosed, to reduce the chances of risks developing in the future.

The complications of misdiagnosis and late diagnosis of diabetes include:

  • Heart attack and strokes
  • Nerve damage
  • Amputations
  • Poor circulation
  • Blindness

The complications from incorrect treatment or delayed treatment of diabetes can be very severe. This is why it is remarkably necessary to get the highest possible compensation for your case to ensure to cover the costs of any medical treatment that may be necessary. This will ensure that you can get back to your daily life in the best possible way, after the trauma that you have faced.
