People’s Stories

Realistic results – Elaine’s story

Elaine’s GP introduced her to Healthier You when her blood sugar levels were at a pre-diabetic level. Since joining Healthier You: NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme, Elaine has not only managed to escape the risk zone for diabetes, but she has learnt a lot about the foods she previously ate and has tried and tested new meals, to create the changes that she needed to make to her diet and lifestyle.

Elaine shared with us that since she had retired, she had not given any thought to her diet, and it wasn’t until she was made aware of her blood sugar levels at a doctor’s appointment that she decided to act on this. Elaine told us:

“The best information I’ve had at Healthier You was about proteins, fats, salt, and sugars, which now I tend to look at when I’m buying things. I have reduced my weight and I now take more notice of what I should eat.”

After losing over one stone, Elaine told us how she feels more comfortable in herself and in her clothes too. Not only did Elaine reduce her weight, but she was able to reduce her blood sugar levels from 42, to below the borderline, so that she was no longer at risk of developing diabetes.

Changes for the better – Simon’s story

After discovering his blood levels were pre-diabetic, Simon was referred to our Healthier You: NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme through his GP.

Simon had initially visited his GP as he constantly felt fatigued and had very little energy. He was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome.

This impacted Simon’s ability to exercise and remain physically active. Simon told us: “My previously poor diet was high in fats, sugar, and salts. I had historic ‘famine and feast’ eating habits and then I was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome in November 2020.”

As part of Simon’s diagnosis, it was identified that his blood sugar levels were at a pre-diabetic level of 49, which meant that Simon had to make some positive changes to his diet and lifestyle.

Since joining Healthier You, Simon has lost a total of 20kg and remains on track to lose another 10kg to achieve his target BMI.

Simon shared: “Following my chronic fatigue syndrome diagnosis, I ceased all forms of exercise and had a very poor diet. Healthier You spurred me into informed action, and they made me feel 100% better. They have helped me to achieve and maintain a step change, leading to a much healthier lifestyle.

“My energy levels have now improved from 2/10 to 8/10; Healthier You has given me the knowledge and inspiration to change! Thank you.”
