Diabetes Clinic

Diabetes Clinic under the direction of Dr. Rémi Rabasa-Lhoret

The IRCM Diabetes Clinic assesses and treats patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. We offer specialized multidisciplinary care and conduct teaching tasks for patients and health professionals, in addition to conducting research projects on metabolism and obesity. These three objectives aim to reduce the negative consequences of diabetes for our patients.

The Type 1 Diabetes Clinic is one of the largest in the province for adult patient care. It offers services for patients using multiple injections or an insulin pump. The Type 2 Diabetes Clinic primarily provides services to patients when they begin using injectable therapies, as well as to patients with cardiovascular disease.


Participate in a clinical study

Fundamental research can lead to the development of new diagnostic approaches or treatments that need to be evaluated for effectiveness and safety through clinical trials. These studies are the ultimate and necessary step before allowing their use. At the IRCM, our doctors and researchers are responsible for several clinical studies in which you can participate. Each study is evaluated and accepted by a research ethics committee. After obtaining your consent, you will be strictly monitored by a team of professionals, including nurses and doctors. Since it is often new techniques or molecules that have not been used in humans, we must monitor potential effects that cannot always be predicted. If you want to participate in studies, do not hesitate to talk to your doctor or you can consult the list of current studies :
