Chichester District Wellbeing is offering free training and awareness programmes which will take place on Monday 21 September at 7.15pm and Friday 25 September at 9.30am. The programme is called CHOICE and is helping families and children to manage their diabetes more effectively. It was a full-packed event attended by patients, nurses, medical technologists, dietitian and doctors, comprising around 229 participants. Type 2 diabetes is a progressive condition in which the body becomes resistant to the normal effects of insulin and/or gradually loses the capacity to produce enough insulin in the pancreas. Screening included questions on risk behaviors, measurement of body mass index, blood pressure, blood cholesterol, random blood glucose (RBG), and A1c if RBG was ≥7.0 mmol/L. Both Type 1 and 2 diabetics are at risk of developing DR. Type 1 is not associated with being overweight and there is nothing you can do to prevent it.
