Diabetes is a life-long health condition that occurs when the amount of glucose (sugar) in the blood is too high because the body can’t use it properly.
Type 2 Diabetes is a progressive long-term medical condition. Managing Type 2 diabetes involves lifestyle changes, and treatment can be complex. The LEEDS Programme helps to improve your knowledge and skills and also help to motivate you to take control of your condition and self-manage it effectively. We see this as part of your ongoing treatment.
Week 1 - Explores ‘what is diabetes’, blood results, medications and their action
Week 2 - Healthy lifestyles including diet, exercise and alcohol
Week 3 - Keeping healthy (preventing complications) with a focus on individual goal setting.
The programme has been designed in line with NICE guidance for structured education, Diabetes UK recommendations and is QISMET approved (a national quality standard).
