Diabetes.co.uk’s Low Carb Program has been shortlisted for awards at the UK Business Awards and the Quality in Care (QIC) Diabetes 2018 Awards.
The Low Carb Program is home to more than 356,000 people. Since its inception on World Diabetes Day in 2015 the program has helped people with prediabetes and type 2 diabetes lose weight and normalise their blood sugar levels, with more than 40% of people with type 2 diabetes eliminating a diabetes medication at the one-year mark.
The program has been nominated in the Innovation category at the UK Business Awards and in the Diabetes Education Category – Adults at the QIC Awards.
Arjun Panesar, co-founder and CEO of Diabetes.co.uk, was delighted with the nominations. He said: “It is wonderful that the Low Carb Program is being acknowledged for helping to empower people to optimise their metabolic health. The nominations are further testament to the incredible work by our Low Carb Program staff and to the success stories we have seen so far on the program.”
The nominations follow a significant period of success for the Low Carb Program. In June the program was awarded a CE Mark, received QISMET approval and won Best Platform / Technology / Tool for Content at the UK Content Awards 2018.
The Low Carb Program is a 10-week evidence-based structural behaviour intervention that has helped completers achieve an average HbA1c reduction of 13 mmol/mol (1.2%), and also lose 7% of their body weight.
Once the 10-week course concludes, users can access an eclectic mix of content including tips, recipes and study reviews to further expand their low carb lifestyles. The program is built for life, and enables users to improve their health with a sustainable (and tasty) lifestyle.
The UK Business Awards will be presented on 7 December at Park Plaza Riverbank, London. The QIC Awards will be hosted on 18 October in Guildford, Surrey.
