Subject: RE: BS: Diabetic Heaven
For anyone out there who is Type 2 diabetic (not on insulin) there are also similar courses. Here in Blackpool they run a course called XPERT which I believe is a national programme and should be available elsewhere in the UK (depending on whether your local PCT delivers it). I think it runs one session a week for about 6 weeks and covers everything you'll ever need to know and is also a great opportunity to meet other folks with the same condition and with similar experiences. Again, you'll need to ask your GP, practice nurse or community matron to refer you.
