Joslin Programs for Diabetes Weight Management

Changing Diabetes through Weight Management

Joslin offers a weight management program that has been created expressly to address the unique weight-loss and weight-control needs of people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes: Why WAIT.

This program is based on clinical research conducted at Joslin and combines the latest insights in weight management and nutrition with Joslin Clinic’s world-leading expertise in diabetes care.

Whether you were diagnosed years ago or just recently, you know that weight reduction and weight management are uniquely critical to your health. With the right nutritional plan and physical activity, you can reduce your need for medication, enjoy better health, experience fewer medical complications and significantly increase the quality of your life.

Joslin offers Why WAIT at key times throughout the year.
