Understanding Diabetes

Diabetes is on the rise, not just in the UK but across the Western world. In the UK, 3.77 million have been diagnosed with diabetes, but many more are thought to suffer from it, only they have not been diagnosed yet. The total number of diabetics in the UK is estimated to be at 4.6 million (numbers by Diabetes UK).

These are frightening numbers, particularly since the most common form of diabetes – type 2 – is now known to be almost entirely diet and lifestyle related and to be completely preventable in the majority of cases!

In my talk “Understanding Diabetes” on 17 October 2018 I will explain how diabetes develops, how it is currently treated, the latest science and what people with diabetes and pre-diabetes can do to manage the illness better. Although the talk will focus on type 2 diabetes, all forms of diabetes will be touched upon and it will be of interest to type 1 sufferers as well.
