The topics our experienced line-up of speakers will be covering include:
- T2 diabetes meal plans
- Counting workshop – carbs, cals, protein, fat, and more!
- Food and diets explained
- The role of exercise in achieving glycaemic targets
- Lifestyle Coaches as members of the diabetes MDT
- Dieticians’ role in diabetes management
Maggie Meer, who founded DPC in 2015 and has type 2 diabetes herself said, “From the very beginning my mission has been to provide a free-to-attend conference and exhibition which focuses on the most pressing issues in diabetes care. There are some exciting new developments in the field of type 2 diabetes prevention, and we felt we needed to provide all healthcare professionals with a forum where the latest research, real-world techniques and best practices are shared. We know type 2 diabetes is on the rise, so we feel it’s imperative that everyone from the multi-disciplinary team has access to the very latest clinical guidance.
“It’s not just prevention where we’ve seen changes, but also remission. In the last couple of years, we’ve seen a major shift in the latest medical research, which has shown the effectiveness of diet in reversing type 2 diabetes. These exciting new findings will also form part of our dedicated DPC Nutrition & Lifestyle Clinic, which we are excited to be launching at this year’s show.”
