Around 200,000 people are diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes every year. You can choose not to be one of them.
Making small changes to your lifestyle now can make a big impact on your future health. This means you can reduce your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes and the risk of serious complications that can come with it. Having experts to help you make the right choices along the way can make it even easier. That’s why we’re working with the NHS to help support people to reduce their risk.

This April, the NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme (NHS DPP) is launching Diabetes Prevention Week. We’ve teamed up with them to raise awareness of their Healthier You programme. This is a free service run by the NHS to help reduce the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.
