Diabetes, Ramadan & Eating Well

Our Practice Nurse will be available at the next Patient Group meeting to explain the additional support being provided to diabetic patients having difficulty managing their condition. (see also the Briefing Note for the meeting)

Last week there was a dedicated session at Peartree Clinic led by the Practice Nurse & Dietician. Ten patients in attendance participated in 15 minutes of chair exercises as well as receiving advice on Asian diets.

At the next session on March 26th, the diabetologist will be available to coach Peartree patients on managing their medication and also looking to manage their condition safely during the fasting season of Ramadan. Further details about this session will be posted shortly.

A Recipe Book to support a healthy lifestyle is currently being drafted and will be made available in due course to complement this activity.
