Peter was told about Healthy Sandwell through the hospital last year as he wanted to get some tips to get healthy.
Being 74 and suffering from Type 2 Diabetes, Healthy Sandwell were able to find a package that was suitable for his bespoke needs. 4 months later, he was enjoying the local programmes and has to date lost 3 stone.
“I have dropped my insulin intake down from 20 units in the morning to 8, and halved my sugar levels within 4 months. I never through I’d be able to achieve this. I feel my health and wellbeing has improved. My eyesight has got better, Ive made new friends and I would recommend the programme to other residents.”
