Diabetes Prevention & Management

It is well known that obesity, unbalanced diet, and physical inactivity are the major risk factors for diabetes. In people genetically predisposed to the disease, the probability to develop type 2 diabetes is high once exposed to “unhealthy” lifestyles. In understanding the potential for prevention of type 2 diabetes, it is important to understand the enormity of a preventive lifestyle intervention.

It is a well-known fact that antidiabetic drug treatment in type 2 diabetes has only a limited effect on glycemic control, which deteriorates in diabetic patients despite intensive treatment, as demonstrated in newly diagnosed type 2 diabetic patients in the U.K. Prospective Diabetes Study.” American Diabetics Association.

 

“There is also strong international evidence which demonstrates how behavioural interventions, which support people to maintain a healthy weight and be more active, can significantly reduce the risk of developing the condition.” UK's National Health Service

 

With a focus on non medication interventions, this programme empowers individuals to self manage their health.
