Research has shown that the South Asian community are at a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The good news is that by doing more physical activity, maintaining a healthy weight and eating well you can better manage your condition and reduce the risk of serious complications. Across Derby and Derbyshire, anyone diagnosed with type 2 diabetes can be referred for diabetes education through their GP practice. The X-PERT diabetes programme has been developed and is available for people from South Asian communities. Nighat talks more about the programme and Hammad explains how it has helped him with his diabetes.
