Atrial Fibrillation (AF) Awareness week takes place between Monday 19th – 25th November 2018. AF is the most common arrhythmia (heart rhythm) disorder in the UK, with over 1.5 million people diagnosed with the condition in the UK.
I started taking part in the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) after speaking with the practice nurse at my GP Surgery as I was concerned about my weight – and I’m glad that I did.
Following a period of ill health a few years ago I had a blood test which showed my blood sugar levels were really high and I was at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes so my doctor suggested a referral to the Diabetes Prevention Programme (DPP).
