Dr Theingi Aung

Consultant Endocrinologist


Specialises in

I do various specialist clinics on different endocrine conditions including PCOS, parathyroid, adrenal and pituitary disorders and diabetes.

I did my postgraduate training in diabetes and endocrinology at the Oxford Deanery (2005-2014). I have a research interest in diabetes and cardiovascular disease and spent three and a half years during training running large scale clinical trials including ASCEND (A Study of Cardiovascular Events in Diabetes) and heart protection studies (HPS-2 Thrive and HPS-3 Reveal) at the clinical trial service unit (CTSU), the University of Oxford. I did my 3 year clinical research fellowship (2010-2013) at the CTSU investigating the cardiovascular disease (CVD) and diabetes, focusing on the role of aspirin and omega-3 fatty acid in the primary prevention of CVD in diabetes.

I joined the Department of Diabetes and Endocrinology at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in 2014 to lead and shape the new services, including the weight loss and bariatric services, and the integrated diabetes and endocrinology services. I am leading bariatric MDT clinics and weight loss bariatric care pathway, the VLCD weight loss project, various endocrine clinics including the virtual thyroid clinics and the radio-iodine treatment for benign thyroid disease.
