Synopsis

As life expectancy increases with better health care, patients presenting for cancer treatments often have other pre-existing chronic conditions and diabetes is one of them.

Diabetes is a chronic condition which results in high blood glucose. This is often due to either the body not producing enough insulin or it is not working as effectively.

For many patients, diabetes management can often take a backseat to cancer treatment. Occasionally, patients are also unsure how to eat well for both. In this workshop, we hope to clarify any doubts you have and share some tips on how you can manage both at the same time.

(Do note that the session will be conducted in English only)
