Liva Healthcare

Liva Healthcare offers free digital health

coaching for people with Type 2 diabetes.

Connecting to a healthcare professional

via an app, the platform sets and monitors

personal goals, including reducing blood

sugar levels, calorie intake and smoking

- as well as increasing activity levels and

sleep.

Simon Pickup, Managing Director

at Liva, explains, "Liva holds the firm

belief that prevention is better than cure.

Though its platform has been proven

to facilitate both. For example, a study

analysing the first diabetes patients

using Liva for more than three months

observed a significant weight reduction of

an average of 3.9kg for diabetes patients

(corresponding to -3.5% of bodyweight

and -1.3 BMI change)."

In the last year Liva has been selected

by the NHS as one of five companies

in the digital field of the NHS Healthier

you: Diabetes Prevention Programme.

GPs can refer patients at risk of Type 2

to the Liva programme in North East

London and Humber, Coast and Vale.

The platform allows GPs to monitor up

to 400 patients at once. With health

professionals responsible for running the

digital coaching sessions, escalating any

issues to senior health professionals and

patients themselves being responsible for

self-monitoring.

Low Carb Program

The Low Carb Program is a 10-week

evidence-based digital solution which

has helped thousands of people with

Type 2 diabetes control their blood

sugar, or even put the condition into

remission. It began with the Diabetes.

co.uk community support forum, which

opened up conversation and real-world

evidence about a low-carb way of eating.

The program outlines a lifestyle low in

carbohydrates, supported with healthy,

unprocessed fats. It includes goalfocused education, access to healthy

recipes, health tracking, behaviour

change mentorship and peer support.

Dr David Unwin helped to develop

the program with Diabetes.co.uk and

the wider diabetes community. He said:

"I'm really interested in empowering

patients by giving them lifestyle choices

in a bid to overturn their Type 2 diabetes.

My passion is, at the point of diagnosis,

offering people a three-month trial of diet

and exercise instead of drugs. Hundreds

of people within my practice are taking

this up. On a weekly basis I'm seeing

patients who are putting their diabetes

into remission without having used any

drugs at all. Not only are we saving the

NHS and the government large amounts

of money on medication, we're literally

transforming their lives at the same time."

Results show that people who

complete the program reduce HbA1c,

lose 7% of their body weight on average,

and as many as one in four people

'reversed' or put their Type 2 diabetes into

remission.
