About

Dr Abbi Lulsegged is a consultant physician with a specialist interest in endocrinology and diabetes. He undertook his undergraduate training at Guy's Hospital Medical School, qualifying in 1994. He later went on to complete his specialist training in diabetes and endocrinology, working at both North and South Thames Deaneries, alongside postings at University College Hospital, the Royal Free and Guys St Thomas’ Hospitals. Later in his career, he was appointed a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians in recognition of his service to his field and medicine in general.

He has a passion for his chosen speciality and enjoys the variety of unselected cases requiring specialist endocrine and diabetes input including thyroid adrenal, pituitary, bone/calcium metabolism, parathyroid, reproductive endocrinology, obesity, and diabetes. He strongly believes in updating himself and has attended training programmes with some of the top institutions in the world.

Due to the overlap with endocrinological disorders, he also sees patients with specific complaints such as tiredness and excessive sweating. Not only this, he has a vested interest in nutrition and integrative (general) medicine and sees patients who have unexplained symptoms or those who fall in the category of general medical conditions. Furthermore, he has a particular interest in the management of unexplained illnesses, obesity and reversing type 2 diabetes, when conditions allow. He believes strongly in trying to determine the root cause(s) of a patient's problems and treating patients holistically. He sees patients from all over the Country and Overseas.

Dr Lulsegged developed the endocrine service at Princess Royal University Hospital, part of Kings College Hospital.

Beyond his medical achievements and exploits, Dr Lulsegged has a patient-centred approach, appropriately being awarded clinical excellence awards for his contribution to the care of patients. An academic phenom, alongside his healthcare interests, Dr Lulsegged also has a degree in biochemistry.

He enjoys teaching and has lectured at international conferences, grand rounds, academic half-days, GP talks and on professional MRCP courses, all of which reflects his broad extra-curricular interests. He wrote questions for the postgraduate examinations in Endocrinology for the Royal College of Physicians and has reviewed clinical papers for Editors of medical journals.

I referred myself to a private doctor who,in turn, referred me to Doctor Lulsegged! Blood tests for some years had been revealing abnormal conditions affecting my general health Doctor Lulsegged became a caring “project manager” arranging a bone marrow biopsy & various blood & urine tests. Throughout Doctor Lulsegged has kept me well informed, at the same time arranging a way forward. He is a very knowledgable gentleman. Thank you so much. I recommend him unequivocally.

Upon discovering that I had Graves Disease, I was fortunate enough to have been assigned to see Dr Lulsegged for endocrinology consultation. Dr Lulsegged took the time and effort to talk me through not only the symptoms of my illness and the medication needed, but also the changes I could make within my lifestyle and my diet, in order to address the root cause and assist my body to heal. At first (admittedly) I wasn’t open to follow the dietary recommendations, but after further chats I made a decision to give it a try - and yes, a year on, my thyroid feels normal again and I’ve completely changed my diet so that now I do not require medication. A huge Thank You to Dr Lulsegged for being always patient, courteous, and open to addressing my struggles. He is not only knowledgeable, but very happily provides further explanations and shares his knowledge when needed. I will always be grateful to Dr Lulsegged and can only recommend him for his superbly professional and kind conduct!

I can recommend Dr Lulsegged without reservation. He spend time explaining my condition; recommending treatments and furtger tests and researching an excellent consultant to whom he sent a referral on my behalf. Dr Lulsegged was happy to offer me telephone consultations between visits in order to amend my medication and he was extremely kind and courteous. I had total trust in him and cannot recommend him highly enough.

It was a very pleasant experience for me to work with Dr Lulsegged. He is a very kind, caring and empathic person. He was the first doctor with who I really felt listened and cared and he has great knowledge. He gave me very useful health advice and also send me to the right specialists every time. After I struggled for almost two years to find out a diagnostic to my health problem, he was the one who sent me to a great Professor who offered me a diagnostic the most likely proved to be correct. I really recommend him as a doctor and also because he gave trust and never gave up on me, as other specialists I saw before, that told me they don't know what I have and there is nothing they could do further.

I very highly recommend Dr Lulsegged to anyone looking for an endocrinologist with a holistic view, a deep personal interest in his patients and a great ability to listen and think outside of the 'traditional medicine' box. Working on my health with Dr Lulsegged, I found my consultations with him very informative and motivating; they have led me to make effective lifestyle changes rather than solely rely on medication. Exceptional.

I could not recommend him highly enough. Thank you!
