Type 2 Diabetes
What is Diabetes Reversal?
Chronic & Progressive?
Traditionally type 2 diabetes has been considered a chronic, progressive disease that can be managed, slowed perhaps but not reversed.
However, in the past decade, a body of evidence has emerged confirming that insulin resistance, which underlies type 2 diabetes, can be reversed making remission possible.
Canadian Practice Guidelines now provide guidance on diabetes remission.

Sustainable Behaviour Change
Type 2 diabetes is a complex whole body disease that results from the interplay of a person's genetics, environment and behaviours and manifests in at least five subtypes.
Our program is designed to help patients understand the specific factors that have led them to develop diabetes, prediabetes, or insulin resistance. We then guide them in making lifestyle changes that will have the most significant impact in reversing insulin resistance.

Recommending to Patients

We work with the patient to schedule them in the program, and coordinate care with their family physician.
We need your help to reach patients when they are most ready to make changes.
Experience has shown that patients' motivation and readiness to change fluctuate throughout their journey with diabetes. As a pharmacist, you are present at many key moments when patients are most likely to make changes.
Starting a new diabetic medication
Starting a new medication, especially the initial prescription, causes most patients to re-evaluate their overall health and how they are managing their diabetes. This is the perfect time to introduce them to our program and the potential for diabetes remission through lifestyle changes.
Experiencing medication side effects
Patients are often caught between significant daily side effects from taking their medications and the potential for disabling complications of diabetes if they don't. Introducing patients to a comprehensive lifestyle program can be the ideal solution to this dilemma.
Inquiring about GLP1s, such as semaglutide
GLP1s pair well with lifestyle changes. Combining lifestyle changes with GLP1s can help patients achieve weight loss and better glucose control at a lower dose for a shorter duration, limiting potential adverse effects such as muscle loss.
For many patients, starting insulin can be a dramatic, negatively perceived step in their health journey. Many patients question whether there isn't something else they can do. Directing them to a physician-led lifestyle program helps patients ensure that they are doing everything they can.
