UK's health agency, NHS has said that it is planning to offer "motivational coaches" in order to fight obesity in the country.
Medical experts said that the motivational coaches will help overweight people reduce weight in order to fight and prevent diabetes. They said that as many as five million people will be given one-to-one and group sessions on weight loss, physical activity and diet as part of a national scheme in the coming year.
Health officials in the UK said that they believe that targeted support will be able to prevent one in four cases of Type 2 diabetes among those people who are identified as high risk. Under the national scheme, doctors were asked to assess all patients over the age of 40 and offer them tests for "pre-diabetes" if their weight or general health put them at the risk of the disease.
According to a new research, 5 million people in England now have high level ofblood sugar levels and are facing the risk of the disease. The doctors will offer a nine month programme, including group or "one-to-one" sessions with health trainers.Officials from Public Health England (PHE) said that the national scheme will offer motivational coachingand advice about healthy living helping people to loose extra weight.
Professor Jonathan Valabhji, national clinical director for diabetes and obesity, NHS England said: "In my work, I see a huge amount of suffering related to the consequences of our current lifestyles - diabetes is being pushed up by the fact our body weight is going up and up. It is causing blindness, kidney disease and other complications, and as well as the human suffering, the cost to the NHS is absolutely massive."
