How diet and exercise can help prevent and treat diabetes

Diabetes UK will be giving a talk on symptoms of diabetes, risk factors and healthy lifestyle choices and also signposting to publications and campaign materials.

Diabetes is a growing health crisis in the UK with figures showing there are around 4.6 million people living with diabetes – an estimated million of whom haven’t been diagnosed yet.

It is a complex condition with different types of diabetes that can affect people in varying ways depending on factors like age, sex, family history, ethnicity and lifestyle. Whilst there are factors like age and genetics outside of one’s control, improving things like diet and exercise has been shown to help many people prevent and treat diabetes.

This presentation will cover the causes, risk factors, symptoms and complications associated with diabetes, the differences between different types of diabetes and how Diabetes UK can help. We will focus on how eating better, and moving more, can help make positive changes; particularly in the current context where many of us are spending longer periods working from home.

Host: Anthony Walker

Anthony is a Regional Support Officer for the London region of Diabetes UK and responsible for coordinating awareness events there. They would usually hold talks and stalls around the capital but have had to adapt to online talks which has presented challenges but greatly helped them reach wider audiences with their message.

Speaker: Lucia Lodererova

Lucia is a committed Diabetes UK volunteer and engages with the public raising awareness of critical health challenges. She is currently completing a BSC in Human Nutrition and setting up to become an Associated Registered Nutritionist. As a qualified Fitness Instructor, Lucia is also keenly aware of how nutrition, physical activity, and regeneration are holistically connected.
