How Dietetics can help

Support for people living with diabetes.

British Diabetic

Dietetics is the science of how nutrition affects our health. Scientific studies have shown how a change to our diet can help prevent or control various health problems, including obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

Importance of good blood glucose control

If you have type 2 diabetes, seeking nutrition and lifestyle support is one of a number of things you could do to help you manage your blood glucose and reduce your risk of developing complications.

Structured diabetes education should be made available to you, and you should be able to see a registered dietitian. Follow this link for more information:
