Preventing Type 2 Diabetes

There are currently five million people in England at high risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. If you have been told you are at risk of Type 2 Diabetes you could be eligible for a place on the diabetes prevention programme. There is strong evidence that behavioural interventions, which support people to maintain a healthy weight and be more active, can significantly reduce the risk of developing the condition. The programme is available across Devon, just ask your GP or Practice Nurse to be referred.
