People with diabetes invited to support group

2015-04-30 06:00

The Uitenhage Diabetes Support Group will have its monthly meeting on Wednesday, May 6th (18:00) at the Andries Marais Boardroom at Netcare Cuyler Hospital.

The special guest speaker is Runeshan Moodley, a biokineticist at NMMU Madibaz Sport, who operates as their fitness and conditioning coach for Madibaz cricket and hockey teams.

According to Razya Nathoo from the Uitenhage Diabetes Support Group, people who suffer with high blood pressure and have cholestral are most welcome at the meeting as diabetes, high blood pressure and cholestrol usually go together.

Moodley was employed as a Biokineticist at Muir College in 2009 and then started his own practice. During 2013 he took up a position at Volkswagen South Africa as their biokineticist and gym manager at the newly built PeoplePavilion.

Since the beginning of the year, he was appointed as biokineticist at NMMU Madibaz Sport. He is still running his private practice on a part-time basis at Muir College Boys High School.

The aim of the support groups is to assist people with diabetes living in the Despatch and Uitenhage regions to understand more about how to control this lifelong condition and how to avoid the nasty complications of uncontrolled diabetes.
