Photo: CATHERINE HEALY Tania Armstrong is glad to be full of energy after battling with her health for years. I feel alive now,'' the Ranui resident says. Last year she com- pleted a diabetes course for Maori at HealthWest and says it has opened many doors in her life. When my doctor told me I was pre-diabetic seven years ago, I didn't really get it. It wasn't until I did this course that I really understood how serious it is. Lots of people think it's just the kai, but it's so much more than that. It's about what's in the food, the portion sizes and exercise. You have to understand those things or your sugar levels are all over the place.'' At the diabetes course Mrs Armstrong was bud- died up with fellow par- ticipant Gwen Kay. The two have become firm friends and are now launching a support group, Manaaki Whanau Oranga, so that course participants can stay in touch and continue to learn about diabetes. We will have guest speakers and specialists coming along to talk to us,'' Mrs Kay says. The guest speaker for our launch is MP Tau Henare. He will share his story -- he is diabetic and had a heart attack not long ago.'' Mrs Armstrong says: There's no expectations, no pressure. If you can't come one week, come the next time. There's something special about that course -- it's the whanau, the sharing. You hear other people's stories and you realise you're not alone,'' HealthWest diabetes co-ordinator Eliza Snel- gar says anyone is wel- come to the next course starting on March 9. The six-week course is free. It's not just for people with diabetes but their whanau too.'' Mrs Armstrong says having her husband come to the meetings with her made all the dif- ference. It was a big thing for me. I needed him to understand too because it's me that has diabetes but he lives with it every day too.'' Contact HealthWest on 839-7493 if you would like to attend the next diabetes course. Mr Henare will speak at the launch of the support group at Te Wai Takere Marae, March 26, from 9.30am.
