ABOUT

The Leicester Diabetes Centre presents the online version of the award winning Desmond self-management diabetes education programme.

Bringing together all the content and research evidence from the face-to-face programme onto a portable interactive web based platform to help you care for your own diabetes in a positive way.

The programme has been founded on the NICE approved face-to-face Desmond self-management programme. This means you are getting the same quality of programme but delivered at a pace and adjusted to suit your needs.

It includes short videos, articles and interactive activities on diet and exercise you can view as quickly, or as slowly as you like.

TESTIMONIALS

It’s been great to use and find out how other people with diabetes cope.

I hope others will find the help and advice from you as helpful as I have.

A tremendous help in helping me to go forward and lose that weight.

MyDesmond is the best Haynes manual of diabetes control that I’ve found so far.

The programme has encouraged me to keep going and not just with the exercise, it has encouraged me to knock my calories down.

All my answers have come from myDESMOND.
