Preventing Type 2 Diabetes

Around 7 million people in the UK have prediabetes and have a higher risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

Our prediabetes programme aims to help prevent the onset of Type 2 diabetes by reducing the risks and allowing people to take more control. The session helps people set small manageable goals to help avoid developing Type 2 diabetes and diet, physical activity and other lifestyle factors are the main focuses.

People who have a higher risk of developing Type 2 diabetes:

  • Family history of Type 2 diabetes
  • Body Mass Index (BMI) of over 25
  • High Blood sugar level test result (from your GP or practice nurse) 

If you fit into these categories our prevention programme could provide you with the advice you need to prevent diabetes.

The session is approximately 3 hours long. To find out more details and book a place please contact Horsham Wellbeing on 01403 215111, or email info@horshamdistrictwellbeing.org.uk.

Anyone who is unsure about their risk of developing Type 2 diabetes can visit riskscore.diabetes.org.uk/start and take a quick 60 second test provided by Diabetes UK.  

Your BMI (Body Mass Index) can also be checked online by visiting www.nhs.uk/Tools/Pages/Healthyweightcalculator.aspx
