Healthy lifestyle

All Wales Diabetes Prevention Programme

Patients who have been identified as being at risk of developing type 2 diabetes following a blood test will be offered a 30-minute intervention with a specially trained dietetic support worker.

The intervention discusses topics such as physical activity, healthy eating and promotes other lifestyle changes such as smoking cessation and alcohol reduction.

Patients are encouraged to follow the lifestyle changes discussed, with the aim of preventing or reducing the risk of developing the condition.
