At a glance factsheet: Lifestyle discussions for people with type 2 diabetes: An overview

Pam Brown
Lifestyle changes are a core part of type 2 diabetes management, and all guidelines encourage lifestyle discussion at diagnosis and during each consultation. Diabetes self-management education programmes educate about, and actively encourage, lifestyle change. This first factsheet provides tools to facilitate lifestyle discussions. Future factsheets in the series will each focus on one lifestyle change in more depth, sharing current guidance, recent publications that will change practice, and signposting to more in-depth education and resources for those who want to learn more.
