The Live Debate

Each year Diabetes Professional Care brings together a panel of experts to hotly contest a controversial diabetes issue. 2016 saw Dr Mike Sadler chair the debate on ‘What should a diabetes patient eat?’. With a plethora of information surrounding the subject and many conflicting views, it was a lively debate! 

Dr Mike Sadler – Debate Chair

 

John Grumitt – Debate Facilitator Chief Executive, Changing Health, Vice President Diabetes UK & Vice President, International Diabetes Federation

John leads Changing Health, which was recently spun out of Newcastle University and Newcastle Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. He is also Vice President of the International Diabetes Federation and Diabetes UK. John provides regular input to health policy development both at NHSE and a variety of think tanks and has led well recognised health system improvements including, amongst others, those in Berkshire and Bexley. Having started his career as a chartered accountant and attending Wharton Business School, beyond healthcare, John has built a number of consumer businesses in the UK and across Europe. Although he has Type 1 diabetes, he leads a highly active lifestyle completing numerous international cycling challenges.

Dr Ian Lake, G.P.

Ian Lake is a GP in Gloucestershire. He became interested in nutrition and health whilst researching preventive measures for diabetes and was surprised to find a discrepancy between the NICE nutrition recommendations and the actual biochemistry of metabolism. As a type 1 diabetic himself,  he made immediate  changes to his own diet with rapid positive changes to both blood results and perhaps more importantly a feeling of wellbeing. Having enjoyed near normoglycaemia for the past year, he is keen to pass on the experience and believes that low carb diets should be offered alongside currently recommended diets by trained staff so that patients can make their own choice. He is writing a course for type 1's to convert to a ketogenic diet, and is blogging about personal experience of prolonged exercise in a fasted state to demonstrate that carbohydrate is not strictly necessary in insulin dependent diabetes.

Ian Lake is a member of the Public Health Collaboration. He has no other affiliations.

Dr Trudi Deakin, X-PERT Health

Trudi is Chief Executive of a registered charity specialising in the research, development, implementation and audit of structured education for the public and healthcare professionals internationally. Trudi’s first degree in Nutrition and Dietetics was obtained in 1993, followed by a teaching qualification in 1998 and a doctorate in diabetes in 2004.

As the founder X-PERT Health and the author of the portfolio of X-PERT Programmes, Trudi has trained over 1,000 healthcare professionals to become X-PERT Educators, which has permitted the delivery of structured education to over 200,000 people at risk of, or diagnosed with, diabetes. She has published widely and has demonstrated that implementation of the X-PERT Programme is a cost saving strategy that not only results in statistically significant improvements in all clinical and quality of life indicators but also reduces the requirement for prescribed medication.

Her ambition is to further develop professional and patient education systems that increase competences to enable people to successfully manage their long term condition, improving health and well-being, and saving healthcare costs.
