Dr Ananth Nayak joined the team at University Hospital of North Midlands NHS Trust in 2013 as Consultant Physician in Endocrinology, Diabetes and General Medicine, having undertaken the higher specialist-training programme as Specialist Registrar, including over 2 years of Clinical Research Fellowship in the West Midlands region. He obtained CCT and post-nominal MRCP (endocrinology and diabetes) during his training.
Soon after joining the Trust Dr Nayak led by example in developing innovative ways of running the joint antenatal diabetes clinics; improving efficiency and patient satisfaction. Dr Nayak is an ARSAC certified endocrine consultant and has revamped the radioactive-iodine service for benign thyroid disease in the Trust. He has been instrumental in expanding the regional insulin pump services and in incorporating innovative technology in effective diabetes management.
Dr Nayak also actively collaborates with colleagues to support the diabetes renal service research and in designing novel pathways for managing endocrinopathies in conjunction with other specialties. The clinical research and service development projects undertaken by Dr Nayak have been recognised nationally and internationally with numerous peer review publications in high impact diabetes and endocrine journals. He is also involved with undergraduate medical students at Keele University and Royal College of Physicians College Tutor at UHNM supporting training for post-graduate medical trainee doctors.

My research focus has been on exploring the impact of variance of HbA1c (a measure of intracellular glycation) from extracellular glycaemia leading to the novel concept of 'glycation gap' in diabetes.
My initial epidemiological research studies have been the first published evidence in literature, through robust methodology, confirming the consistency of the glycation gap in diabetes and its association with demographics, vascular complications and mortality in diabetes (Nayak et al Diabetes Care 2011 and 2013; Diabetes 2018).
Through my own research in Antenatal Diabetes at UHNM we have demonstrated significant reduction in key pregnancy outcomes by treating women with gestational diabetes incorporating HbA1c in screening.
My research has been presented at International and National meetings. I have been a co-investigator in the multi-centre national studies and also clinical trials at UHNM.
