Interview with the researcher...
The Big Cost to the NHS of Unmanaged Diabetes
Dr Adrian Heald
Here is the poster presented...
An apocryphal tale. My next door neighbour has many health issues one of which is Type 2 diabetes. His diabetes is not well managed as he mostly follows NHS advice and continues to eat large amounts of carbohydrate. He was recently admitted to hospital as an emergency patient with severe breathing difficulties. When I went to visit he had been given the following to eat. Breakfast had been porridge and toast, lunch sandwich and fruit and dinner, which he ate while I was there, orange juice, sausage and mash with peas and fruit salad. The staff were aware that he is diabetic as they administered metformin while I was there. Diabetics don't stand a chance under the current guidelines. Having been silent about my own diagnosis for 5 years, I waited until he was at home and a little better and went round to talk about LCHF!
The NHS has a huge responsibility for not giving people a range of dietary models to follow and for educating STAFF accordingly.
Thanks I’ll go look now. Well found.
So the headline should be... NHS gives bad advice to diabetics costing lives and giving itself a massive bill in the process.
