Diabetes Education

Being diagnosed with Diabetes can be daunting. With the right dietary support your journey will become much easier.

Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 Diabetes affects 85-90% of people with diabetes.

It is a lifestyle disease and is strongly associated with other health issues.

Insulin Resistance

Insulin resistance occurs when excess glucose in the blood reduces the ability of the cells to absorb and use blood sugar for energy.  This can increase your risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Gestational Diabetes

Gestational Diabetes occurs in about 3-8% of pregnant women. It happens because of the changing hormone levels during pregnancy.
