The first group of sessions of Eat4Health has now concluded. Initial invites went out to 250 selected patients at 5 (EmisWEB) surgeries, and we had approximately a 20% response to the sessions.
We know we have already picked up 4 previously undetected Diabetics (mainly based on HbA1c > 48) and suspect at least double that number will turn out to have IGT/IFG. Although this is a worthwhile outcome in itself it is not the point of the project, which is to try and intervene before the point of diagnosis.
Once the post intervention bloods and measurements have been collated we can then identify the actual numbers of IGT/IFG.
