Diabetology unit _


The Unit offers a varied and comprehensive approach to patients suffering from Type 1, Type 2 or gestational diabetes.

Founded in the 1970s, the Diabetology unit has enabled the Clinique de La Source to be a pioneer in therapeutic coaching to diabetic patients. 

La Source is the only clinic in the Lausanne area with a specialised unit offering multidisciplinary, personalised treatment for patients suffering from diabetes (type 1, type 2, secondary and gestational).

This unit consists of clinical nurses specialising in diabetology along with a dietician. The team works according to the principles of therapeutic coaching in close collaboration with doctors specialising in endocrinology and diabetology, general practitioners and physicians.

Individual consultations:
  • Coaching regarding glycaemic self-management, insulin injections and treatment using an external insulin pump.
  • Implementation of continious glucose monitoring (CGMS-FGM) for diagnostic and/or treatment purpose. 
  • Treatment of gestational diabetes from the moment of diagnosis
  • Nutrition assessment and personalised dietary coaching
  • Prevention and treatment of diabetic feet
