The multi-award winning Low Carb Program app is now available to people with type 2 diabetes in South East and South West London.
Type 2 diabetes residents in south-east and south-west London can now refer to the low-carb program themselves through the area’s diabetes book and learning system.
The NHS-approved behavior change platform helps people achieve self-chosen health goals by reducing the amount of carbohydrates in food to 130 grams per day.
Users are supported through structured training, health coaching, community forum, virtual meetings, food diary and an AI-powered meal plan generator that provides plans tailored to patients’ health, budget, dietary preferences and cultural norms to encourage long-term behavior and maintain change.
The program provides tailored, native language support for BAME populations.
Robert McCarthy, Associate Director LTC Management & Improvement at NHS South East London CCG, said: “We are pleased to offer the low carb program as an option to patients with type 2 diabetes in South London.
“The low-carb program is another fantastic digital tool to aid self-management of type 2 diabetes and in some cases even remission.”
Arjun Panesar, Founding CEO of DDM, Creator of the Low Carb Program, said: “We are excited to support the diverse community of people with type 2 diabetes in South East and South West London with the Low Carb Program.
“The platform helps people develop small habits that lead to long-term, transformative change, and gives hope and encouragement to people with type 2 diabetes and prediabetes across South London.”
The Low Carb Program is used by over 450,000 patients to support sustained weight loss and improved metabolic health.
Peer-reviewed, published results of the Low Carb Program show that participants with type 2 diabetes who completed the intervention lost an average of 7% of their body weight and 1 in 4 achieved type 2 diabetes remission after 1 year .
When used by people with obesity, the app alone supports significant weight loss comparable to dietitian-led treatment.
The app was recently named the Best Health App for Type 2 Diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes Prevention by The Times.
The app is available on mobile phones, iOS, Android, smartwatches, Amazon Alexa and on the web at LowCarbProgram.com.
