-Diabetes is the fastest increasing health condition in the world with the International Diabetes federation diabetes atlas (2012) predicting that numbers in Ireland would rise > 230000 by 2020 and > 270 000 by 2030. 85-90% of people with diabetes have Type 2 diabetes.
Lifestyle interventions can improve Blood sugar control and reduce medication requirements in those already diagnosed. This is particularly true soon after diagnosis but is beneficial at any stage.
Lifestyle interventions can also prevent the development of Type II diabetes in up to 80% ( Finnish Diabetes Study)
So if you have pre-diabetes or Type II diabetes book a consultation and see what a difference even small changes make.
