The UK has over 500,000 people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities living with diabetes, and a greater number at risk of developing it. When information, education or advice is culturally focused, outcomes for people with diabetes in BAME communities improve. BAME communities in North West London (NWL) wanted dietary information relating to food they recognised and advice in a format they could easily understand, but this information was not available. A collaboration was formed between Carbs & Cals and NWL Diabetes Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) to create a book for education and self-management in BAME communities.
