Diabetes.co.uk’s Low Carb Program has been awarded the Best Platform / Technology / Tool for Content at the UK Content Awards 2018.
The award was presented to Amar Panesar, Digital Communications Manager of Diabetes.co.uk (pictured, centre) on Thursday 21 June at the Montcalm Marble Arch Hotel, London.
The UK Content Awards celebrates the delivery of “high quality, valuable content which attracts, informs and engages”.
Mr Panesar said: “To collect this award on the behalf of the incredible team behind the Low Carb Program is a huge honour. Congratulations go to everyone involved. This program is helping to show that type 2 diabetes does not have to be a progressive, chronic disease and it is incredible to see the amazing results the program is enabling.”
The award adds to a significant period of success for the Low Carb Program, which received a CE mark earlier this month, and was green-lighted for NHS use by the Quality Institute for Self Management Education and Training (QISMET), a leading accreditation body.
Since its inception in 2015, the Low Carb Program has grown into a community of more than 326,000 people. The 10-week evidence-based structural behaviour intervention has on average helped completers achieve an HbA1c reduction of 13 mmol/mol (1.2%), and also lose 7% of their body weight.
Furthermore, the Low Carb Program has helped thousands put their type 2 diabetes into remissio, with more than 40% of type 2 users eliminating a medication after one year. The Low Carb Program has shown to be hugely cost effective, saving the NHS £835 per person, per year in prescription costs.
Once the 10-week course concludes, users can continue learning with our wide range of lifestyle content, the quality of which was recognised by the UK Content Awards judges. This content includes recipe ideas, research reviews, low carb tips and tricks as well as a variety of feature articles.
The program is built for life, allowing users to achieve fantastic results with a lifestyle they’ll be able to continue and enjoy for years to come.
