Low Carb Program available for people with type 2 diabetes in South East and South West London
The multi-award-winning Low Carb Program app is now available for people with type 2 diabetes in South East and South West London.
Residents with type 2 diabetes in South East and South West London can now self-refer to the Low Carb Program through the local area’s Diabetes Book and Learn System.
The NHS-approved behaviour change platform supports people to achieve self-selected health goals by reducing the amount of carbohydrates in the diet to 130 grams a day.
Users are empowered with structured education, health coaching, community forum, virtual meetups, food diary, and an AI-powered meal plan generator providing plans tailored to patients’ health, budget, dietary preferences and cultural norms to engage and sustain long-term behaviour change.
The program provides tailored, native-language support for BAME populations.
Robert McCarthy, Associate Director LTC Management & Improvement at NHS South East London CCG said: “We are pleased to provide the Low Carb Program as an option to patients with type 2 diabetes in South London.
“The Low Carb Program is another fantastic digital tool to support self-manage of type 2 diabetes and in some cases, even remission.”
Arjun Panesar, Founding CEO at DDM, makers of the Low Carb Program said: “We are delighted to support the diverse community of people living with type 2 diabetes in South East and South West London with the Low Carb Program.
“The platform supports people to make small habits that lead to long-term, transformational changes and provides both hope and encouragement to people with type 2 diabetes and prediabetes across South London.”
The Low Carb Program is used by over 450,000 patients to support sustainable weight loss and improvements in metabolic health.
Peer-reviewed, published outcomes of the Low Carb Program show that participants with type 2 diabetes who complete the intervention lose an average of 7% of their body weight and 1 in 4 are in type 2 diabetes remission at 1-year.
When used by those with obesity, the app alone supports significant weight loss comparable to dietitian-led care.
The app was recently ranked best health app for type 2 diabetes and type 2 diabetes prevention by The Times.
The app is available on the mobile, iOS, Android, smartwatch, Amazon Alexa and the web at LowCarbProgram.com.
