Diabetes X-pert Patient Comments
Deb and I enjoyed your classes and
I am now preparing smaller portions
All the family are benefiting from more fish
But still have rump steak as a treat
Exercise awaits the better weather so
Thanks for all your advice delivered with your
Enthusiasm and sense of humour
See you for my 12 monthly check.
"Very well presented and informed course, Would thoroughly recommend anyone with Diabetes to attend. Plenty of understanding informative and helpful tips of how to live a normal life with Diabetes"
"I have been told that I am on the verge of developing Diabetes Type 2 so the X-Pert course has made me realise I have to put things right quickly before it develops any further. I have learnt so much and the course has been very helpful. I have learnt why diabetes develops, how important it is to loose weight and what to eat to reduce blood glucose levels to prevent Type 2 Diabetes, possible complications and a lot more. I have been on tablets for high blood pressure for many years and I was diagnosed with high blood cholesterol last year and so am on tablets for that too. I am now much more motivated to put things right so the tablets can be reduced and I do not get Diabetes Type 2. The Course has certainly given me more confidence and made me realise the seriousness of my situation. Thank you Penny and X-Pert for your valuable help"
