Attending a diabetes education course is a very important part of learning the basics of how to manage your type 2 diabetes and live a healthier life – it's free, paid for by the NHS and only lasts four hours!
The course will help you understand what diabetes is, the effect it has on your body and how to make small, achievable changes to the food you eat and your everyday life.
Courses are run during the week across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland in community venues, with evening and weekend courses also available if this would suit you better.
