For anyone with Type 2 diabetes, regardless of treatment.
Attending the X-PERT Diabetes programme will increase your knowledge, skills and understanding of your condition and help you to make lifestyle choices to manage your blood glucose levels more effectively. An overview of the X-PERT Diabetes Programme can be found here.
Speak with your GP or Diabetes Team to check if they deliver our X-PERT Diabetes Programme locally. You may need to be referred to receive an invitation to a free course or access to the X-PERT Diabetes Digital Programme App.
If your GP does not currently offer X-PERT education in your local area you can purchase the Diabetes Digital Programme App, or the X-PERT Diabetes Prevention & Management Handbook, or book on to a Remote Diabetes Group Programme via our very own website shop.
