Approximately three-and-a-half million South Africans suffer from diabetes. The majority of people in South Africa have Type 2 diabetes with many cases being undiagnosed because there are very few symptoms initially. An unhealthy lifestyle such as poor food choices and obesity contributes to the cause and progression of type 2 diabetes.
The route to a population with pre-diabetes and diabetic complications is a short one.
On Thursday, June 19 between 6pm and 7pm at M-Kem 24-Hour Medicine City in Bellville, there will be a free Type 2 information session with Dr Louise Spruyt and I.
Dr Spruyt has a doctorate from Oxford University in immunology and a Post Graduate Qualification in Diabetes and Diabetes management. I have shed 70kg and now no longer take medication to manage diabetes proving that the disease can be beaten. I supports people to achieve a healthy weight with my Type 2 Revolution.
I will share 10 tips to stick to a restricted eating plan while Dr Spruyt will talk about diabetic warning signs and answer questions.
There is no charge for the session but booking via Type2Revolution@BrianBerkman.com is essential as places are limited to 30.
