The Fitness and Rehabilitation Center at Dasman Diabetes Institute, which was established by Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences, has completed the comprehensive educational program under the slogan ' Be Dasmani' on the 11 April 2015.
This program was designed with the purpose of educating type 2 diabetic patients about the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle in order to manage diabetes and prevent its complications. Participants in this program undergo a comprehensive assessment that includes a full clinical examination as well as blood and urine tests, electrocardiogram, body composition testing, and fitness assessment.
The participants also receive nutritional counseling with the dietitian who assesses their dietary programs individually and provides them with healthy eating guidelines. A diabetes educator assesses their knowledge about diabetes and ability to manage their condition effectively, and provides advice tailored to the needs of each participant. Furthermore, The Fitness Center ensures that every participant receives individual fitness consultations with the exercise specialists in order to understand their individual goals, needs, and physical limitations. The exercise specialist then uses the information gathered to design a safe and effective exercise program for each participant.
Be Dasmani Program participants attend lectures that aim to raise awareness about diabetes, its acute and chronic complications, blood glucose monitoring, healthy eating, and exercise. In addition, the program includes daily group exercise classes and workshops in which the participants learn the basic principles of exercising safely.
