Second Nature is a 12-week behavioural change programme for people living with type 2 diabetes that’s primarily delivered through a smartphone or tablet app.

The programme can be tailored to suit your lifestyle by your nutritionist and the educational content is available in more than 10 different languages, including English, Urdu, Hindi, Arabic, Gujarati, Tamil, Polish, Chinese, and Punjabi.

The programme helps you build healthier habits, learn more about type 2 diabetes and supports long-term lifestyle change by providing:

  • Evidence-based structured education on living with diabetes, nutrition, exercise, sleep, stress management, and positive psychology
  • Peer group support (an online group of 10 others similar to you)
  • Personalised health coaching from a registered dietitian
  • Tracking technology (track you weight, activity and habits in the app).
