DfD is run by a team of three, each with specialist knowledge and expertise in diabetes. In addition there are two regional representatives:

The original idea for DfD came from Steve Turner, who has had diabetes for nearly 40 years. As a diabetic he has to count carbohydrates. A problem he regularly encounters in both personal and business life is estimating the carbohydrate content of restaurant meals.

Steve also recognised that the counting of calories and fat when eating out is also difficult for many people, not just those with diabetes.

The idea has been developed in consultation with:

bullet

a Registered Dietician with a BSc in Nutrition and Dietetics having over 4 years experience working with people with diabetes. Qualified in carbohydrate counting.

bullet

a Registered Diabetes Specialist Nurse with an MSc in Advanced Clinical Practice, having over 8 years experience working with people with diabetes. Qualified in carbohydrate counting.

Regional Representatives:

Dr Jake Turner - Regional Representative North
Ph: 01206 854524

Luke Turner - Regional Representative South
