One of the initial objectives is to quickly reverse the metabolic upset caused by your high blood glucose levels. The aim is to get you feeling well again without symptoms and with restored energy. A satisfactory response to dietary change and/or therapy needs to be recorded.

A system of monitoring and follow up will be outlined so that your progress can be charted and reviewed on a regular basis.
