About the Diabetes Program
Welcome to Toronto Rehab’s Diabetes, Exercise, and Healthy Lifestyle Program. Our diabetes program team is here to help you manage your diabetes or prediabetes and reach your exercise and lifestyle goals. This is a group-based, hybrid program meaning that some sessions take place at our centre and you join others virtually (by computer or phone).
Taking part in a program, like this one, can help you manage your blood sugar to prevent or delay health problems that often happen with diabetes. If you have prediabetes, our team can support you to make changes to help prevent diabetes. Already, we have helped thousands of people take control of their health. We are here for you too.
Your virtual diabetes program is 16 weeks long and includes both exercise and education.
Our team will work with you to create an exercise program that is safe and effective for you.
Your education program includes 16 weekly learning plans that you will work through with the support of your diabetes team.
By taking part in your exercise and education program, you will improve your health and gain the knowledge and skills to manage your condition and maintain healthy habits. We look forward to working with you on your journey to better health.
