I was found to be pre-diabetic after a routine health check and the DPP was one of the suggestions made to me. I was keen to try the programme as I am taking enough drugs for other health issues and wanted to look at preventing going on to develop full diabetes, rather than just medicate it. I would highly recommend the programme to anyone. Even in these Covid times, we have been able to build great camaraderie and Adam has been great in his delivery of the programme. There has been no judgement and I honestly felt everyone involved genuinely wanted to make a positive change.
I am now in the “normal” range, no longer pre-diabetic after a follow up blood test back in May. I have lost 2 stone and have a much better understanding of my diet; even though I would have thought I knew it all, having been on so many different diets all my life.
Adam helped highlight the importance of exercise , without making it feel like another thing to add to the list of “stuff” I should do.
The programme brought home to me how a large part of my health is down to my own choices and that is empowering.
"Empowering experience of the DPP."
