Diabetes.co.uk – Low Carb Program


Diabetes.co.uk has an award-winning and experienced team of 30 employees. It is the world’s largest diabetes community and provides support, information and digital health interventions. The platform empowers patients and has had clinically validated health outcomes. The Low Carb Program (LCP), launched in November 2015, is a ten-week, automated, structured health intervention for adults with type 2 diabetes, prediabetes and obesity. Each patient’s journey is personalised through an AI-led engagement pathway. The program was developed in collaboration with Southport GP Dr David Unwin (NHS Innovator of the Year 2016) and the feedback of 20,000 patients with type 2 diabetes who completed a 54-question survey. Their responses highlighted gaps in education. The forum users instigated the program’s development, which takes account of patients’ personal goals, demographics, culture, associated co-morbidities, food preferences and budgets to influence changed lifestyles. It is accessible via mobile, PC or App. The program’s grass-roots origin has pushed scientific understanding and forced a growing acceptance of type 2 diabetes remission. Over 326,324 people have downloaded the program from 195 countries around the world.
