Andrew’s journey back to health

Andrew was homeless from 2003-2008 with high blood pressure and type II diabetes. He saw the nurse at the 999 Club to get his blood pressure and sugar levels regularly checked. Andrew saw the nurse at least once a week and now his levels are normal. He says that the nurse was very helpful. Andrew is now looking after his health by staying away from white sugar, white flour, tea and coffee. He drinks a lot of water and sees the nurse occasionally just to make sure he is alright.
