He is a National Committee member for the Diabetes Technology Network (DTN-UK). He has a background in clinical research, obtained during his time at Guy’s and King’s College and St Thomas’ Hospitals, into impaired awareness of hypoglycaemia in insulin-treated diabetes and the cerebral and endocrine mechanisms underlying the syndrome. For the last 20 years, Dr Cranston has been in practice with the goal of translating the lessons learnt from research into routine clinical care consultations. This has resulted in a focus on effective glucose monitoring strategies to underpin clinical decision-making and the development of data analytical processes to guide clinical consultations towards more effective therapeutic interventions in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. He has published widely on this topic area (over 60 Peer-reviewed publications) and has been an invited speaker at Diabetes UK, EASD and many National meetings around the world For the last 5 years, Dr Cranston has been a co-director in a collaborative educational project with Professor Roger Mazze (International Diabetes Center [IDC] Minnesota), at the AGP Clinical Academy, which has the central goal of educating healthcare professionals in the effective clinical interpretation of the ambulatory glucose profile derived from continuous glucose monitoring technologies.
