Taking care of your mental health is important and even more so when you have diabetes. If you have diabetes, you are at a higher risk of depression and anxiety, so taking care of all aspects of your health, both physical and mental, is extremely important for your wellbeing

It is clear that our mental wellbeing is as equally as important as our physical wellbeing. It may perhaps be more important! If we aren’t feeling mentally well and are experiencing any anxiety or depression, it can impact the way we take care of our physical health. One great feature about the 12-week diabetes program, is that mental wellbeing is taken into consideration. Throughout the course of the program check-ins are conducted to see how you’re feeling.

































What should I do next?

If you experience any symptoms of prediabetes or you have risk factors for developing prediabetes, it is important to get tested for as soon as possible. Some people are at higher risk and need regular testing. If you are 45 years or older or have other risk factors for prediabetes and type 2 diabetes, you will require more frequent testing. By diagnosing and treating the prediabetes early, it means you can decrease the risk of developing or delay any further health complications of prediabetes, for example nerve damage, blindness, and heart disease. It is important to know that diagnosing prediabetes should not rely solely on using a Hb A1c test.

Once you learn what your prediabetes status is, or if you already have prediabetes, the next most important step is to become educated. You can join the 12-week Prediabetes Program to help you learn how to prevent or delay prediabetes. The prediabetes program is personalised and tailored, giving you more of the content that you want. The program also helps you to stay motivated and teaches you what changes you need to make. The first week is free and full of helpful and crucial information.

If you would like to be a part of a supportive program, with easy to understand video content covering all aspects of diabetes, join our personalised 12-week program today! Don't forget, when you sign up, you receive the first week free!
