Episode #45 - Diabetes – a conversation with my husband

diabetes Jun 11, 2021

On this episode I chat to my husband about his diabetes diagnosis and management.

More people than ever have diabetes. In the US 14.3% of people have Type 2 diabetes and 38% are pre diabetic. That’s more than half of the population.  

Many people do not realise the catastrophic effect diabetes has on the entire body. In the US Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness and the leading cause of end stage kidney disease. It up to quadruples your risk of having a heart attack and increases your risk of having a stroke between 150 and 400%. It also increases risks of nerve disease, cancer and more.

I am passionate about helping women reduce their risk of Type 2 diabetes through eating in a healthy and sustainable way to lose weight, that includes a reduced consumption of foods with added sugars and refined carbohydrates.

Listen in to find out more.
