Are you at risk of developing type 2 diabetes?

As part of a national campaign, you can now check your risk of developing type 2 diabetes by using Diabetes UK Know your risk tool.

If your score indicates you are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes, you will be directed to join the Type 2 Diabetes Prevention Programme, which is separate from this programme. The programme is free, and currently delivered with remote Zoom sessions or a digital-only option to support you in eating healthily, becoming more active and increasing general wellbeing.

Why don’t you take this opportunity to find out your risk by using the ‘Know Your Risk’ tool below and join the programme to be healthier.

If your GP / nurse has said you are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes or you have non-diabetic hyperglycaemia then please ask them to refer you to the NHS type 2 diabetes prevention programme. For further details about this programme please visit the Diabetes Prevention Programme website.
