Diabetes effects 1 in 12 people, it is the leading cause of blindness in the working population and there are 170 amputations a week. Learning how to manage your blood sugar spikes could prevent you from ever having diabetes, help you manage the condition if you are already living with it and for some even reverse it. If that’s not enough and you are managing people, do you have in place appropriate diabetes risk assessments, is everyone following DVLA regulations and have you done all that is reasonable and practicable to ensure the safety of your staff around the risks posed by diabetes? We will be covering all this and more in the talk.
