Hanna Purdy is Registered nurse with specialisms in Public Health Nursing and Occupational Health nursing, currently working as an Urgent care nurse in Cornwall, UK. Even in Urgent care she finds daily evidence of the effects of insulin resistance and advises patients on lifestyle changes to reverse it and the symptoms they are so often suffering. Originally from Finland, her earlier books include Sokerit Pois (`Ditch the Sugars') in 2015 (under her maiden name Hanna Jantti) and Ravitseva Ruokavalio Vauvasta Vaariin (`The Nutritional Diet for Life, from babies to the elderly') with Anja Jantti in 2014, She is the mother of three happy, almost completely sugar-free teenagers who know all about, understand and live Hanna's approach to healthy eating. Her goal is to empower us all to recognise and overcome insulin resistance ourselves before it does us irreversible long-term damage.
