If a doctor has given you a diabetes Type 2 diagnosis, you may feel frightened, anxious or uncertain about your future. It is true that with a diabetes Type 2 diagnosis, your life will change. This change, however, doesn’t have to mean a reduction in qualify of life. In fact, millions of people live healthy and fulfilling lives following a diabetes Type 2 diagnosis.

One program that helps many adapt to the challenges of diabetes Type 2 is the Healthy Living with Diabetes program, which we’re happy to offer our diabetic members at Network Health.

What is Healthy Living with Diabetes?

Developed by experts at Stanford University, Healthy Living with Diabetes is an evidence-based workshop that is proven to improve the health and wellbeing of those who have been diagnosed with diabetes Type 2.

When you enroll in Healthy Living with Diabetes, you’ll join others with a similar diagnosis once a week for six weeks. Classes are two and a half hours and empower members to enhance their understanding of what it means to have and live with diabetes through tools and resources.

Facilitated by two trained and knowledgeable leaders in a small group setting, you’ll find explorations of topics related to mental, physical and emotional health and wellbeing and how they relate to your diabetes Type 2 diagnosis.

Beyond simply learning how to deal with symptoms, exercise in a way that reduces their impact, make healthy eating choices and use medication effectively, you’ll also have a chance to share your experience with other people who have been diagnosed with diabetes Type 2.
