Prediabetes and the National Diabetes Prevention Programme
A record number of people in the UK are living with Type 2 diabetes. Sadly many people will experience potentially preventable complications because of diabetes, simply because they don’t know enough about their condition and how to manage it.
The good news is if you're at risk of Type 2 diabetes there are lots of small changes you can make to prevent diabetes from developing in the first place.
The first thing to do is find out if you are at risk by using the ‘know your risk of Type 2 diabetes’ tool. Then find out more about prediabetes, the causes and the steps you can take to reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
You may even be eligible for your local, free Healthier You: NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme (NDPP). The NDPP can support you to make simple changes to improve your diet, weight management and physical activity levels. These are easy to incorporate into your everyday routine and can significantly reduce your risk of diabetes-related health problems.
