“Dr Abbi Lulsegged is frankly exceptional. He truly listened to you, and took a holistic approach in the treatment. He also takes time to explain his logic, and what the next steps might be. He goes out of his way to make sure the treatment is effective and affordable. I'm genuinely impressed and would recommend him a thousand times. I'd also like to mention his secretary Charlotte who is so responsive, professional and kind. It's a great team.“

    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.

    Graves’ Disease
    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.

    Dr Abbi was fantastic. I'm so glad I found him as he was caring, listened to my concerns, scheduled the appropriate tests and provided me with a clear treatment plan which in the end worked so well that I was able to resolve all of my symptoms without requiring prescription medication. I could not recommend him highly enough. Thank you!

    I applaud Dr Lulsegged. I am truly grateful for his time, as he gave me my life back, mentally, physically and emotionally. Dr Lulsegged is a very compassionate man. He takes the time to listen to you and then he thoroughly explains your medical condition and his suggested treatment plan to make you feel well again. I have an underactive thyroid; my treatment plan was approached medically and holistically. Dr Lulsegged looks at the whole picture of wellbeing. My treatment is combined T4/T3 therapy, along with a low carb diet and supplements. Mine was a long process but Dr Lulsegged was always on hand to answer my questions and concerns. He would always ask and make sure that I was happy and understood the process of my treatment. Dr Lulsegged is a very knowledgeable and experienced specialist, giving outstanding service. I highly recommend him! Thank Dr Lulsegged.

    Excellent Dr beyond all expectations, through Dr Lulsegged my cholesterol dropped "dramatically" down to normal in just 2 months, something I had always been totally unable to achieve before I received the professional input from Dr Lulsegged, his knowledge and manner was truly inspiring.

    I decided to see Dr Lulsegged, because I was feeling so unwell and out of sorts but the NHS GPs and NHS endocrinologists kept saying that there was nothing wrong. Dr Lulsegged listened and checked the various tests I’d done myself and worked with my NHS GP to run some further tests investigating various conditions. He didn’t dismiss my symptoms as my imagination or say I needed to see a therapist like the NHS had suggested. He was very supportive of my concerns and was willing to discuss my own theories about my heath. He was willing to monitor me during a trial of thyroid medication I had sourced myself. He continues to work with me improving my heath. I’m very grateful that I found him and that he has helped me.
