Thanks Becky, I've recommended this. The guy's GP has referred him for exercise, and re. nutrition, I would only give generic information.

Dave-

I assume this person is one of your personal clients needing physical therapy. Nutrition assessment and counseling for diabetes/weight loss, should only come from a Registered Dietitian. In the United States, a physical therapist could face legal action for providing these services without a degree and certification/liscensing. I am not sure of the rules in your country.

You may want to suggest a referral to see a Registered Dietitian so the appropriate diet can be prescribed based on medical needs.

I am not diabetic, nor an expert, however have read repeatedly from MANY different sources that by picking up his level of physical activity, bulking up on non-starchy veggies and some fruits and cutting back on highly processed sugary / fatty foods he will do wonders for his diabetes.

I just signed up a client with type 2 diabetes, 44 year old male, 25 stones in weight, has been sedentary for a good while now. Would appreciate any advice on this topic.
