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.

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 (find out more about the programme here). The Diabetes UK 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
  • are not pregnant
  • do not have diabetes currently
