Arjun Panesar, DDM’s Founding Chief Executive Officer, said: “We are humbled to be recognised as the leading digital therapeutic for type 2 diabetes prevention. Our work with NHS England and NHS CCGs across the UK is demonstrating type 2 diabetes does not have to be a chronic or progressive disease.”

Charlotte Summers, Founding Chief Operations Officer of DDM, added: “The Times’ Best Health Apps 2020 List is a great way to recognise clinically-validated innovation. Ensuring digital innovation is rigorously evaluated ensures patients access clinically safe and effective services.”

Tara Kelly, Lead Dietitian at DDM, said: “I’m delighted to see the Low Carb Program recognised as the no.1 ranked diabetes prevention app.

Published, peer-reviewed research has shown that the Low Carb Program is successful in achieving glycaemic control, weight loss and reducing hypoglycaemic medications. In 2018, it was approved into the NHS Apps Library. The platform has a CE Mark and is  registered with the Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

It has also gained QISMET approval so it can be prescribed on the NHS. More than 440,000 people have joined the Low Carb Program since it was launched on World Diabetes Day in November 2015.
