Dr. Umesh Dashora

Co-opted - News editor, BJD

I work as a consultant in Hastings and I have trained in diabetes and endocrinology at Newcastle and Southampton among other centres.

I have been a keen member of ABCD executive team since 2013. I have actively promoted and contributed to the ABCD journal as the news editor. I have represented ABCD in JBDS-IP and contributed to a number of recent national guidelines the most recent being diabetes management during delivery in which I am the first author. The committee has recently trusted me with the publication of a recent mid wives survey that I was involved with. I was lucky to be the first author of one of the first ABCD position statement on SGLT-2 inhibitors in type 2 diabetes which is published now. Another position statement is now ready to be published for type 1 diabetes. I also published U500 use in UK on behalf of ABCD. I am active in ABCD audits.
