This monthly group meets to give advice and support to people living with diabetes. Each month they look at a different topic and provide support and encouragement to each other.
In the diabetes group I’ve learnt about caring for my feet, about diabetes in general and about sugars in food from a dietician. I’ve also been on a Desmond Course which I wouldn’t have been too.
The diabetes Group has opened my eyes that you have to take care of your medication and yourself. I wasn’t taking my statins before going to the diabetes group but now I understand better that it is important to take my medication consistently. I’ve learnt to have a healthy balance of food and to only have certain things in moderation. I take much better care of myself. – Diabetes Group participant
