Diabetes X-Pert Programme

The X-Pert is a six-week group education programme for those who are diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. It will help you understand more about diabetes and how you can manage it through lifestyle changes. It is suitable for anyone newly diagnosed and those who have had diabetes for a while but want to learn more.

Each programme is run by 2 experienced health professionals who will guide you through all aspects of your diabetes. It is a 2 ½ hour session each week for 6 weeks. It is important that you attend all the sessions to fully benefit from the course. If you wish you may bring along a family member or friend.

The X-Pert is run on different days in various venues around Stockport.

Topics covered each week are as follows:

  • Week 1 – What is Diabetes?
