Under medical guidance, our patients are benefiting from the Diabetes Remission Clinical Trial (DiRECT) that provides the best evidence from a real-life trial in General Practice of a non-surgical approach to weight loss. Thanks to ground-breaking research from Newcastle University, UK adults with Type 2 Diabetes are now curing themselves. We now have proof that intensive weight management is achievable and can prevent complications of diabetes.
SPEAK YOUR MIND
Many older adults have problems with communication and speech. Our voice gets weaker as we age making it difficult for other people to understand what we are saying. Early dementia, Parkinson’s disease or a stroke may also contribute. Be it minor or severe challenge you are facing, focused speech therapy can build your confidence and ability to communicate.
