Get inspired by Harjinder

Harjinder started to experience diabetes symptoms so went for tests, which showed she had type 2 diabetes.

Her parents have type 2 so Harjinder thought she understood a little about the condition, but she still struggled with knowing what to eat. She found all the information mindboggling, which didn’t help.

Harjinder has seen a consultant following a referral from her GP. The consultant listened to her, was very supportive and kind. As a result her blood sugar levels have now improved.
