Finding out you’ve got Type 2 diabetes can be an overwhelming experience.
Learning how to better manage your diabetes is a positive step to make. We’re here to support you.
Type 2 & Me has been replaced by Learning Zone, our new online education service for adults with Type 2 and Type 1 diabetes.
Register for Learning Zone
It’s free and easy to register for Learning Zone and you can use it whenever it suits you. We’ve combined our medical expertise with practical advice from real people with diabetes to create a new way to learn more about your diabetes. It isn’t a replacement for going on a face to face education course, but can be something you do whilst you’re waiting to attend, and after you’ve been on a face to face course, to keep learning and feel supported in the future.
We’ve got information on:
- preventing complications of diabetes
- how to learn more about diabetes
- food and making small tweaks to what you eat
Each section has a range of videos, animations and quizzes to do, and ways to get you thinking about how you can adopt healthier behaviours for managing your diabetes in the long run. It’s not a list of do’s and don’ts or a diabetes test, it’s a friendly way to get some up to date information and advice on looking after yourself, from people who know what it’s like to live with diabetes.
Learning Zone is currently in BETA phase, which means we’re adding new things all the time, and we’d love to know what you think. Join us, and help us build a new way to help more people just like you understand more and take control of their diabetes.
