NIHA Deputy Theme Lead for Cardiometabolic Health and Brain Ageing has been recognised as the world’s top expert for diabetic ketoacidosis

One of our Deputy Theme Leads at NIHA has been recognised as the world’s top expert for diabetic ketoacidosis – a condition which can prove fatal for people with either Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes.

Ketan joined the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) as a consultant in diabetes, endocrinology and general medicine in 2004, and became an Honorary Professor of Medicine at the UEA (University of East Anglia) in 2019.

He is a full time clinician with particular interest in inpatient diabetes – specifically regarding peri-operative diabetes care, the management of diabetes related emergencies, and the ‘diabetic foot’.

He leads one of the largest foot clinics in the East of England. He also holds a number of national roles: he is the Chair of the Joint British Diabetes Societies Inpatient Care Group where he has led or co-authored the national guidelines on the management of various aspects of inpatient diabetes care including the guideline on diabetic ketoacidosis.

He is the Chair of the Examining Board for the UK Specialist Clinical Exam in Diabetes and Endocrinology; immediate past President of the Diabetes and Endocrine section of the Royal Society of Medicine, and an Associate Editor of Diabetic Medicine and BMJ Open Diabetes Research & Care

Ketan is Deputy Lead for our Cardiometabolic Health and Brain Ageing Theme within NIHA  and we congratulate him on this prestigious recognition.
