Diabetes Program

Research shows that Type 2 Diabetes can be
prevented or delayed in up to 58% of cases by
maintaining a healthy weight, being physically
active and following a healthy eating plan.
The Exercise Physiologists at PROmotion run
a comprehensive 4 week program centred
around education and exercise for patients
with Type 2 Diabetes.

 

Initial Assessment

 

All patients must have a 45 minute initial assessment with one of our Exercise Physiologists which involves a full past and present medical history, a physical examination to assess cardiovascular, respiratory and musculoskeletal function plus a collaborative

discussion with regards to the individuals needs and goals to ensure the tailored program that is developed is specific to that person.
