A chat with Dr Marouf about late-onset diabetes

This week on Bodytalk I interviewed Dr Eltayeb Marouf, consultant endocrinologist and general medical specialist at Spire Hartswood Hospital. Dr Marouf is a regular guest on Body Talk and he gave me an update on some of the latest available treatments for late-onset diabetes, specifically for type 2 diabetes, including drugs that help to minimise weight gain in older diabetics.

We talked about how changes in lifestyle are vital in managing diabetes - by eating healthily (lots of veg!) and exercising regularly. 30 minutes of exercise 5 times a week is surprisingly easy - a brisk walk to the train station and back, for example.

We also talked about how diabetics can avoid problems at this time of year when everyone is over-eating - the trick is to eat and drink in moderation!
