We know that heart disease is a complication of diabetes, and therefore affects people with Type 1.
A great venue for learning and meeting new people. Come join us for a friendly and enjoyable DESMOND course with free tea and coffee provided. Easy to get to from Putney, Southfields, Wimbledon and Roehampton. There are direct buses from Clapham Junction also!
DESMOND is a course for people with Type 2 diabetes. The course helps you to understand and take control of your diabetes, and to learn about food choices and lifestyle so you can lead a healthy life.
You can choose to interact with Oviva digitally using our online resources and app or choose an offline programme using phone calls and printed materials/DVD content. The patient is in control of how they interact with their personal dietitian and can switch between the methods of interaction throughout the programme depending on their needs.

“Whilst I was a little apprehensive about going to a group course, I found hearing about diabetes with others who were like me was really helpful. Lots of what I learnt I was able to do straight away. I’m so glad I went. ”
