The inspiring stories of Defeat Diabetes members who have used our program to improve their blood glucose levels.

Colin B
HbA1c down from 7.8% to 5.9%

"My (previous) GP put me on diabetes medications and a statin. I felt I had no alternative, I'd lost control of my health. Defeat Diabetes gave me hope. Following the program, I never felt like I was on a diet; I now eat the foods I love."
