Type 2 Diabetes – Know your risk

Posted on

Type 2 diabetes can lead to serious health complications if left untreated.

Anyone can develop Type 2 diabetes but the older you are, the more at risk you are of developing the condition.

People from Black and South Asian backgrounds are more at risk of Type 2 diabetes and from an even younger age.

You’re two to six times more likely to get Type 2 diabetes if you have a parent, brother, sister or child with the condition.

Finding out your risk only takes a few minutes using the Diabetes UK risk tool — it could be the most important thing you do today.
