How exercise can help people with diabetes: Find out with Diabetes UK

In this column, I would like to invite you all to a very special FREE event on July 22 at 1700 BST. Please register, as you will be sent a copy of the webinar even if you cannot attend live.

The special Diabetes UK webinar is entitled: “How exercise can help people with diabetes”, being held to support and celebrate this year's South Asian Heritage Month.

Diabetes, particularly cases of type 2 diabetes, is a growing health problem for people of South Asian descent.

The likelihood of developing type 2 diabetes is reported to be as much as six times higher in South Asians than in Europeans, with a number of factors – mostly linked with lifestyle – believed to be behind this increased risk. In addition, South Asians tend to have poorer diabetes management, putting them at higher risk of serious health complications.
