In my role as ambassador for Public Health Collaboration, I am offering the FREE 8 week course ‘Say NO to Diabetes’

This first session is to explain why PHC are offering this free course and how it will work with you.

It will be a relaxed informative session, please come early and grab a drink from the shop downstairs.

Who is the course for?

This is for you if you:

  • have been told that you are pre-diabetic

  • have already been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes

  • had gestational diabetes during pregnancy

  • have a family history of type 2 diabetes

Please note that if you are on blood sugar lowering medication there are some caveats and it is important that your doctor knows that you are attending the course and will support you as your medication may require adjustment to avoid hypoglycaemia. I can furnish you with a letter for your doctor, explaining what the course entails so your GP knows what you are doing. Please let me know if you need a copy.

If none of these conditions apply to you, but you are interested in learning more about Real Food and the impact food has on your health, you are welcome to join, too, provided that there are spaces left.

What is it about?

Every week, we will discuss a topic related to diabetes - especially type 2 diabetes.

  • What is diabetes - exactly? What is the difference between type 1 and type 2?

  • What are the long-term health consequences?

  • What is the role of diet in the prevention and management of type 2 diabetes?

  • What to eat? What not to eat?

  • How to make sense of food labels

  • and more …
