Talk: Understanding Diabetes

In the UK, 700 people are diagnosed with diabetes every day. 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. 90% of diagnosed cases have type 2 diabetes – a disease that is preventable. Diet and lifestyle changes are powerful weapons against diabetes, as illustrated by the documentary “Fixing Dad”, shown on BBC2 in July.

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.

The talk will be held in Leigh-on-Sea on 13 October 2016.
