Since type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition, it is paramount to promote a genuine Therapeutic Patient Education (T.P.E.), upon recommendation of the World Health Organisation (W.H.O.), in order to acquire and maintain abilities that allow the patients to optimally manage their lives with the disease.
And as we firmly believe that the only efficient therapies are the ones that involve the patients directly. Our diabetes programme is a self-management and educational programme designed to support people living with type 2 diabetes.
The main goals of the Desmond programme are following :
Every time you visit us as part of your diabetes programme, you will meet either a dietitian or a personal trainer. The dietitian will help you establish your personal diet including tips for you to put into practice at home, while your personal trainer will advise you on the best type of sports activity for you. These consultations will also be a chance for you to spot potential bad dietary habits or unhealthy patterns of your personal lifestyle.
During your sessions, you will have the opportunity to try out our different high-tech treatments aimed at improving your quality of life as a type 2 diabetes patient.
