The Group's Second Meeting

On Monday the 7th of September the second open meeting was held at the Tennis Centre, Plas Coch Wrexham.

The talk based on a healthy diet for diabetics was given by Victoria Williams, Dietician BCUHB, based at the Maelor Hospital Wrexham.

Based around the eatwell plate, the talk included carbohydrate consumption and the meaning of GI and its effect in the diet.

The meeting was well attended and many questions were put to Victoria which were answered well.

There were many new faces and feedback was gained into what people wanted to know such as diabetes and exercise, diabetes and driving, eye conditions, the control of diabetes and its side effects.

The group is making contacts and working to identify consultants, doctors and nurses best qualified to deliver on these topics.
