DSC - Diabetes Sustainable Change Program

Your 3 month diabetes solution for pre-diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes. This program incorporates dietary changes , lifestyle factors and education sustainable controlling your sugar levels once and for all! 

We believe you can have full control of your life 

What Causes Type 2 Diabetes?

Insulin is a hormone made by your pancreas that acts like a key to let blood sugar into the cells in your body for use as energy. If you have type 2 diabetes, cells don’t respond normally to insulin; this is called insulin resistance.  Your pancreas makes more insulin to try to get cells to respond. Eventually your pancreas can’t keep up, and your blood sugar rises, setting the stage for pre diabetes and type 2 diabetes. High blood sugar is damaging to the body and can cause other serious health problems, such as heart disease, vision loss , and kidney disease. 

Managing Diabetes

Unlike many health conditions, diabetes is managed mostly by you, with support from your health care team (this includes us- Registered Dietitians, psychologists, diabetes educators), family, and other important people in your life. Managing diabetes can be challenging, but everything you do to improve your health is worth it!

You can manage your diabetes with healthy eating and being active. Stress is a part of life, but it can make managing diabetes harder, including managing your blood sugar levels and dealing with daily diabetes care. Regular physical activity, getting enough sleep, and relaxation exercises can help. 

Whether you were just diagnosed with diabetes or have had it for some time, meeting with a diabetes educator through our DSC program is a great way to get support and guidance, including how to:

  • Develop a healthy eating and activity plan

  • Test your blood sugar and keep a record of the results

  • Recognise the signs of high or low blood sugar and what to do about it

  • Monitor your feet, skin, and eyes to catch problems early

  • Buy diabetes supplies and store them properly

  • Manage stress and deal with daily diabetes care
