The Diabetes Association of Sri Lanka hosts a Wellness Program, which is a new concept in healthcare.
Wellness is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being not merely the absence of disease. It is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices needed to lead a healthy life. Thee basis of this program is evidence based on the findings of the research project Diabrisk-SL, which was carried out by the NDC from 2008 - to 2013.
This program is suitable for healthy individuals as well as those at risk of developing diabetes. Biochemical, clinical assessments are made together with anthropometric measurement. Those who are identified as high-risk will be followed up by a medical officer with lifestyle advice on a regular basis.
