We are pleased to announce that GlucoRx will be our Commercial Partner for the Mercer Surrey Half Marathon.

GlucoRx is one of the UK’s leading Suppliers of Diabetes products to the NHS, with their head office based in Woking.

GlucoRx has staff based across the whole of the UK who provide training and equipment to the NHS for the treatment and management of Diabetes.

Last year GlucoRx’s team raised money for Health Amplifier (https://www.healthamplifier.org/) which transforms the lives of people living in extreme poverty by providing quality healthcare and community development.

GlucoRx Grants

Reading this report and seeing all the good work that is being done by the Charity Health Amplifier with our support in improving the lives of the people of Kikavu brought me close to tears.
Such an amazing difference in such a short period of time.

I am really looking forward to the next 12 months and the construction of the new specialist diabetes care and a mother & child unit which we have fondly named internally as the Chris Chapman Centre – but in all seriousness, we can’t wait to see the finished building and the Legacy this will create for the people of Kikavu and others.

The report can be downloaded here.

Can Mindfulness Help You Give Up Sugar?

We were interested to read recently about a trial conducted at the University of Minnesota looking at how easy, if possible at all, it was for a group of people to give up sugar in their coffee.

All the 127 participants (who didn’t have diabetes) were placed into three groups. These were randomly selected groups, each with a different aim. (more…)

GlucoRx Takes Fight Against Diabetes To The Supermarket Shelf

People with diabetes can now take steps to manage their condition at the same time as doing their weekly shop.

Healthy Snacking For Diabetes

We’re all prone to surges of hunger now and then, but for diabetics, it’s really important to be prepared. If we work from the assumption that hunger will strike out of nowhere every now and then, and have some ideas (and food) constantly to hand, then it will help avoid falling off the wagon and having to make up for it later.

How The New Sugary Drinks Recipes Could Affect Diabetics

The Sugar Tax

 

For many years, campaigners have been working relentlessly to reduce the amount of sugar in soft drinks. It’s a move to prevent an obesity epidemic, with taxes for manufacturers who continue to produce what are considered to be ‘unhealthy’ products.

They estimate that 2-2.5% of the diabetes population has an ulcer in any given week, around 60,000-75,000 people in England. (more…)
