"Spire Hospital Bristol is easy to access and offers a supportive environment for patients and staff."
I have been a Consultant in Metabolic Medicine since 2014, specialising in lipid disorders, diabetes, inherited metabolic diseases, electrolyte imbalance and laboratory medicine. As a practising lipidologist, I am actively involved in research of cholesterol lowering medications and offer latest treatments to my patients. I also have extensive experience in management of patients with side effects of statins or uncertainty over use of statins.
I see patients with cholesterol disorders, prediabetes and metabolic syndrome, disorders of electrolytes and investigation of rare metabolic disorders. I also advise patients and other doctors on the implications of blood tests. I consult patients with metabolic effects of antipsychotics and antidepressants; investigation of metabolic disorders and metabolic optimisation.
In addition to my clinical role, I am Clinical Lead for Pathology at Weston General Hospital. As an honorary senior lecturer for University of Bristol, I teach and mentor students and doctors in training. I provide education leadership as Year 3 Lead for University of Bristol North Somerset Academy, and regularly teach nationally on GP courses on laboratory medicine and metabolic disorders.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Wycliffe Mbagaya at Spire include:
