Let’s Prevent Diabetes

Let’s Prevent Diabetes is a group education programme which aims to support people identified at high risk of Type 2 diabetes and work with them to prevent or delay the condition, through a structured education programme to target lifestyle modification and behaviour change which can be culturally adapted to suit your local population

The programme is six hours in length, attended by up to ten people and led by two trained Educators.

Discussions cover the risks and implications of developing Type 2 diabetes, as well as how to make lifestyle changes to prevent its development. Our trial showed that participants who attended this pragmatic low resource intervention could significantly improve their HbA1c, LDL cholesterol, sedentary behaviour and step count, when compared to those who did not attended.
