Know your risk of Type 2 diabetes

Every two minutes someone finds out that they have Type 2 diabetes, a potentially serious health condition that can cause long-term health problems. It can lead to sight loss, kidney failure, loss of a limb, and makes you at least twice as likely to have a heart attack or stroke.

NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme

It’s very important that you find out if you are at high risk of Type 2 diabetes so you can get support to lower your risk. You may even be eligible for your free local Healthier You: NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme. Our risk tool can help you find out if you’re at risk of developing the condition. It takes just a few minutes and could be the most important thing you do today.

The programme is open to people who:

- are aged 18-79 (if you are over the age of 80 and would still like to be referred, please contact your GP)

- are not pregnant

- do not have diabetes currently
