ONLINE LEARNING FOR TYPE 2 DIABETES

Whether you've just discovered or been living with the condition for a number of years

THE PROGRAMME

The programme has been divided into a number of sessions so you can work your way through the information at a pace that suits you.

The sessions cover everything you need to know about your diabetes including what is going on in the body and food choices - definitely our most popular sessions!

You can save useful personal information like your blood glucose and cholesterol, as you go along.

This helps you see your progress over time through our interactive health marker widgets.

OUR BACKGROUND

DESMOND began life in 2003 as a group education programme developed by a team of NHS researchers with many years of experience in diabetes.

They wanted to develop a way of supporting people, like yourself, to live a life with diabetes in the way that you want.

This same team has now come back together, along with people with diabetes who are regular users of the internet, to develop this online programme.
