DIAfit is an exercise training program open to everyone who has had type 2 diabetes for more than six months. An individual with diabetes is at high risk of developing complications (infarctions, kidney and eye diseases, etc.).
Regular physical activity has a beneficial effect on cardiovascular risk and wellbeing. It is a pillar of treatment of type 2 diabetes. Specialized and personalized supervision gives everyone the opportunity to safely practice an effective activity.
Supervised by a specialized multidisciplinary team, this program was implemented so you can do group exercise and develop your knowledge about diabetes. We invite you to:
The DIAfit program combines activities and specific education over a twelve-week period. First, the physician managing the DIAfit program verifies that you can perform this exercise without risk.
Throughout the program, you and the managing physician create an individual plan of education, care, and physical activities based on your needs, and expectations.Adjustments to your treatments are carried out through your physician or your treating diabetes specialist.
The program provides for an initial individual interview with check-up, physiotherapy assessment, and additional exams (blood tests, stress test), as well as a final assessment.Throughout the program, your monitoring is ensured by a multidisciplinary team comprised of physicians, physiotherapists, nurses, and dietitians in collaboration with your treating physician or diabetes specialist.
