With over 1.2 million members and 50 million visitors a year, DDM is a pioneer in providing digital health and engagement platforms. Our health interventions, like the Low Carb Program, have been featured in the New Scientist, The Times, Daily Mail and BBC with thousands of people placing their type 2 diabetes into remission.
