Language matters when talking about diabetes - DNZ Podcast

This significance of this topic is increasingly being recognised in health, how does language impact people as far as their health, wellbeing and experience of the world?  We are seeing the debates in nutrition, education and health about how the communication experience can lead to improvements, or be to the detriment of people's health.   This is an excellent episode of Diabetes New Zealand's (DNZ) video/podcast series talking about the types of language we use and how it can have an effect on the wellbeing of people with diabetes (or any condition) and their whanau.  Stress and anxiety are given as just one example of something that can be caused or made worse by language, and that can have a direct impact on actual level of blood sugar.   Rosemary Hall (endocrinologist), Ruby McGill (advocate for type 1 diabetes) and Megan Whelan (RNZ media) bring their experience to the discussion.   There are other episodes in the series, Nutrition matters, movement matters and prevention matters.
