Alison Barnes

Senior Research Associate (dietitian), Newcastle University
Alison Barnes is a Senior Research Associate (Dietitian) at Newcastle University on 2 studies investigating remission of type 2 diabetes: the DIabetes Remission Clinical Trial (DiRECT), and ReTUNE (REversal of Type 2 diabetes Upon Normalisation of Energy intake), investigating the effect of weight loss upon type 2 diabetes remission at lower BMIs. She is a graduate of the Diabetes UK Clinical Champions programme, a group head judge for the annual Quality in Care (Qic) Diabetes Awards, and has (briefly!) appeared as an expert on the BBC’s ‘How to Stay Young’ and ‘The Truth About Carbs’. Alison is an HCPC Registered Dietitian and has specialised in diabetes and weight management since 2009. In addition to her research post she holds an honorary contract as a Diabetes Specialist Dietitian with Newcastle Hospitals NHS Trust. Alison has a personal insight into some of challenges faced by people living with long-term conditions, having been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes aged 8. Her experience has helped her develop an ethos of empowering patients to better understand and be able to manage their own health through effective dietary changes, and supporting other Healthcare Professionals to do the same.
