There are 2 main types of diabetes:
Type 1 Diabetes where the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the cells that produce insulin. There are no lifestyle changes that can be made to prevent this type of Diabetes.
Type 2 Diabetes where the body does not produce enough insulin, or the body’s cells do not react to insulin. 90% of adults with diabetes have type 2 Diabetes. You can however manage Type 2 Diabetes through healthy eating, regular exercise and maintaining a healthy body weight (BMI).
An annual review with our Practice Nurse will keep a check on your diabetic control to monitor progression of the disease and further complications. Ongoing checks of your eyes and feet are also important as are early intervention of wounds.
Thank you for completing the first stage of your annual review.
Upon receipt of the completed online questionnaire a clinician will determine one of three outcomes – detailed at the end of the survey.
