Beat It Diabetes Program
Research has shown that exercise can provide benefits such as improving blood glucose control, reducing reliance on medication, improving blood lipids, improving blood pressure and quality of life.
The BEAT It program was founded by the NDSS and has been developed for people who have been diagnosed with or are at risk of developing diabetes. The program empowers you with the necessary skills and knowledge to assist in the management of your diabetes and chronic disease through exercise and lifestyle modifications.
The program is it designed for you to be able to replicate exercises in the home to allow for long-term sustainability and lifestyle change.
The Group program involves
- 1 x pre-assessment
