DAS is a one off 2 hour ‘Diabetes Awareness’ group session.
People in the group have usually self-referred, although some may have been referred by a healthcare professional to the X-PERT Programme but are unable to commit to the full 6 week programme. This group is for UHB staff only and is held on UHB sites.
DAS is a taster session and provides first-line information regarding managing your diabetes. It includes an overview of ‘What is diabetes’ and the role of carbohydrates, blood glucose control, along with the principles of healthy diet and weight management.
