Live Life in Health:
Diabetes prevention and remission
An educational & behavioural change
program to radically improve diabetes outcomes
Why should you do this program?
The aim of this program is to end diabetes through education, inspiration and belief that diabetes does not need to be a life-limiting health condition.
Ending diabetes or radically improving diabetes outcomes can significantly reduce the impact on people's lives, the wider economy and the NHS.
This is in contrast to traditional GP management of diabetes which is to control diabetes within blood sugar readings rather than a full remission or reversal of diabetes.
What outcomes can you expect?
Expected health outcomes include:
- Reduction in Hba1c (blood sugar)
- Reduced cholesterol, BP & weight
- Reduced medication
- Improved well-being
- Shared experience and connection
Long term outcomes:
- More days living in health
- Reduced cost to NHS
- Reduced carbon footprint
What does the program cover?
There are multiple causes in the development of diabetes. Combining changes across these different causes can often lead to radical improvements.
The program is fully evidenced-based using the latest knowledge in improving diabetes outcomes.
Program contents include:
- Nutrition & exercise
- Psychological well-being
- Behaviour change
- Understanding medication
- Sleep & Stress
- Associated factors including family and trauma
