Diabetes Prevention Week - 1- 7 April 2019

If you think you, or someone you know, is at risk of developing type 2 diabetes:

  • go to https://riskscore.diabetes.org.uk/start to get an estimate of your risk of developing type 2 diabetes
  • take up the offer of a free NHS Health Check which will assess your risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease and hypertension  - the NHS Health Check is available to everyone over 40 and if you are over 40 you are also more at risk of developing diabetes
  • ask your GP or practice nurse for a blood test to check blood sugar levels
  • if you are invited to attend a Healthier You session, take up the offer.

Find out more about Healthier You at www.stopdiabetes.co.uk or ask a member of your GP practice team.
