Understanding Diabetes

Wednesday, 21 March 2018, 7 pm

The Body Matters, Suite 6, 8 Madeira Avenue, Leigh-on-Sea

In the UK, 700 people a day are diagnosed with diabetes. That’s one every two minutes! 3.4 million people are currently living with diabetes, and nearly 5 million people are at risk of developing it. One in four people with diabetes are not aware that they have it. 90% of diagnosed cases have type 2 diabetes – a disease that in the majority of cases is preventable. Diet and lifestyle changes are powerful weapons against diabetes, as illustrated by the documentary “Fixing Dad”, shown on BBC2 in July 2016.

If your doctor has told you that you are pre-diabetic, if you already have a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes or if one of your loved ones is affected, if you want to take control of your own health again or to learn how you can support your relative, this talk is for you. Learn how diabetes works, what the risk factors are, what complications can arise from T2D and, most importantly, which diet and lifestyle changes you need to make to step back from the slippery slope of diabetes.
