Healthy living with type 2 diabetes

Healthy living with type 2 diabetes

Being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes means that looking after your health has become even more important. The healthy living programme is a group information session for newly diagnosed type 2 diabetics. It has been developed to provide information and advice to help you self-manage your diabetes.

What can you expect?

We will:

  • Give you information on a range of topics including treatment and care for type 2 diabetes, healthy eating and improving activity levels
  • Help you understand the potential consequences of living with diabetes
  • Give you confidence to make healthy lifestyle changes
  • Prepare you for any health checks you might need
  • Give you the opportunity to discuss questions or concerns with health professionals
  • Help you meet others who have recently been diagnosed with diabetes (please feel free to bring a partner/spouse/friend with you).

To find out more information about this programme please contact your GP/practice nurse. Alternatively you can contact the Healthy Lifestyles team on 0300 456 1006.
