Why should I recommend the program to my patients with prediabetes?
The Canadian Diabetes Prevention Program has been designed by LMC Healthcare and Diabetes Canada to help participants reduce their risk factors for developing type 2 diabetes. This free, evidence-based program offers individualized telephonic health coaching and goal setting, online learning modules and live group learning sessions to help your patients achieve their weight loss, healthy eating and exercise goals.
