Diabetes Ireland Spring Meeting
April 23, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Type 1 Diabetes Workshop: Stream (2pm)
Living well with Type 1 diabetes requires more than just good glucose control. It involves a whole body approach to protect blood vessels through setting and meeting personal health targets; understanding and using technology effectively to help you achieve this, understanding how personal emotional and practical lifestyle choices impacts on your long term health and exploring other avenues of focus so that diabetes is viewed more positively.
Type 2 Diabetes Workshop: Stream (2pm)
This workshop stream will focus on staying healthy with Type 2 diabetes. It will set out the new food pyramid recommendations and their impact on healthy eating guidelines from a Type 2 diabetes management and daily food planning perspective and highlight the importance of setting and meeting personal health targets and how the personal emotional and practical lifestyle choices you make impacts on your long term health.
Pregnancy and Diabetes Workshop (3pm)
This is a special one-off workshop for women with diabetes and their partners who are, or maybe, considering starting a family in the future. This workshop will provide an opportunity for women with diabetes to understand the importance of planning, how to plan and prepare and work with their diabetes team to ensure they have a successful pregnancy.
