People with type 2 diabetes from the south coast are being invited to participate in a type 2 diabetes exercise project. 

The study is organised by researchers from Solent University and the NHS Hampshire, Southampton and Isle of Wight clinical commissioning group. The purpose of this study is to improve the health and wellbeing of individuals living with type 2 diabetes, who will benefit from exercise, applied knowledge and support from structured and holistic intervention to encourage long-term lifestyle change. 

Researchers are looking for people with a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes who are registered with a GP in Southampton or Southwest Hampshire. Around 80 participants are sought for the study that will involve results of fitness testing and screening. Consent to publish results in a peer reviewed journal, will be obtained from the participants.

All results will be anonymous. Researchers said participants would benefit from the study in several ways, including: patients may expect to lose weight and learn how to maintain a healthy weight through exercise; blood pressure may reduce as well as blood glucose levels; mood, confidence and physical activity levels may increase; quality of life may increase; and stress levels may decrease. 

For more information or to take part in the study, contact Amy Woodford, Health and Exercise Development Officer at Solent University, who will check your eligibility and book you in for an initial consultation by calling 023 8201 3671, or by emailing here 

A DRWF information pack will be distributed to participants of the survey
