The Healthy Weight For Life™ Type 2 Diabetes program aims to improve overall diabetes management (eg. blood glucose control, weight, blood pressure, cholesterol) and quality of life.
The in-home program is suitable for individuals with a body mass index (BMI) ≥ 28 who have type 2 diabetes and are motivated to:
