"Grateful for the encouragement and advice"

About: Promoting Well Being / Diabetes Prevention team

(as the patient),

I started the above programme in January 2021. My current HbA1C reading is 36 and my weight loss is 5 kgs.I was initially surprised when I was advised to participate in the above programme as I had no suspicion about being pre diabetic.Following the advice about eating well and regular exercise as detailed throughout the programme has got me to a much healthier place. I am greatful for the encouragement and sensible advice and information presented on the programme.

It has been invaluable.
