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.
