Healthy Living Programme for type 2 diabetes

Type 2 diabetes develops when your body can’t produce enough insulin, or when the insulin that is produced doesn’t work properly. If untreated, it can cause very serious health problems.

Being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes means that looking after your health has become even more important. You can make simple changes to your lifestyle that make a big difference to how your diabetes progresses.

The Healthy Living Programme for type 2 diabetes is for everyone diagnosed with type 2 diabetes over 18 living in Torbay and South Devon.

The course is not suitable for:

  • those under 18
  • those who are at risk of developing diabetes (Non-diabetic hypoglycaemia/prediabetes)
  • those with type 1 diabetes
  • those who are pregnant
