Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr James Ahlquist at Spire include:
Endocrinology and Diabetes Mellitus
I am a Physician with a specialist expertise in Endocrinology, Diabetes and general medicine. I trained in Bristol, Birmingham and Oxford and also worked at Massachusetts General Hospital (USA). I have worked as a Consultant in Southend since 1995, and also do regional clinics in Essex and in London. My clinical practice includes all aspects of general endocrinology, including disorders of the thyroid, pituitary, parathyroid, pancreas and adrenal glands and also reproductive disorders.
Endocrinology is about hormone disorders. The most common conditions are thyroid disease, reproductive matters and problems with calcium balance. Pituitary disease is less common and this is an area where I have a particular expertise. Endocrinology also includes disease of the Adrenal Glands and Pancreas, and some uncommon genetic disorders.
Diabetes is an increasing problem in our community, and routine care often requires some specialist input. People with diabetes often have concerns about choice of treatment, the complications of diabetes and what the future holds and I am able to provide information and care to patients with this condition.
Dr Ahlquist's clinic is held on Tuesday afternoons.

I live locally to the Wellesley Hospital. In addition to medicine my other great interest is music. I also sing in a number of local choirs.Back to top
