Today is #WorldDiabetesDay
The news headlines tell us that people with type 2 diabetes and obesity are paying a particularly high price during the global pandemic. Not only do they have a higher risk of severe COVID-19 disease and death when infected, but many are having difficulty accessing the treatment they need, due to disruptions to essential health services.
There are 3.9 million people living with type 2 diabetes in the UK and scarily around 700 people a day are newly diagnosed. That's the equivalent of one person every two minutes!
As a qualified Nutrition Network Adviser, and also the PHC (Public Health Collaboration) ambassador for West Berkshire, my mission is to help people tackle obesity and diabetes.
Through 1 to 1 coaching, or group workshops, I help people to understand more about nutrition, adjust their diet, and reverse, or avoid developing, type 2 diabetes (and happily usually lose weight as a welcome side effect!)
Keen to know more?
On #WorldDiabetesDay, to encourage local people to take the first step on the road to recovery, I am offering a FREE 20 MINUTE initial consultation to anyone who would like to explore how I can help them recover their health and vitality. PM me if you would like to know more.
In the meantime, here is a link to a fabulous paper by one of the founders of the PHC, Dr David Unwin #lowcarbgp, explaining how he completely transformed his practice, has helped 86 people achieve drug free remission - by helping them adjust their diet - and on top of that, saved the NHS a huge sum of money by cutting his drugs bill!!
You can also listen to Dr Unwin here as he discusses his successes with Marc Dolan on talkRADIO.
