“Diabetes is a cause for many other metabolic diseases such as heart and vascular diseases and stroke. Complications include loss of eye sight, kidney failure and amputation. Recent study showed a 62% reduction in diabetes-related health care costs if a comprehensive interdisciplinary diabetes education is implemented. Diet control is one of the most important facets in controlling diabetes and this is often neglected or ignored. We are very fortunate to have Chirs onboard to drive home on this point. Chris is known as one of the most caring and talented chef. He educates and motivates: he is completely at home with the subject of type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. His passion comes from being a diabetic patient himself.” says Charles Liu R.Ph, MBA, DDP’s Cruise Education Coordinator and spokesman.
