Over 50? Overweight? Have high blood pressure? You’re at an increased risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, a chronic condition that affects more than 90% of the 3.9 million people living with a diabetes diagnosis in the UK.
Are you at risk of Type 2 diabetes?
With 1 in 15 people in the UK having diabetes, the serious health condition is far more common than many people realise. It is estimated that 12.3 million people in the UK have an increased risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, although many aren’t aware of what factors can increase their risk.
Overweight and over 50? You might be at risk of Type 2 diabetes.
Overweight individuals have a significantly greater risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. In fact, obesity is responsible for 80 to 85% of someone’s risk of developing the condition.
Diabetes is found in nearly one third of people who die with COVID-19
Every 2 minutes someone finds out that they have Type 2 diabetes, while thousands of others go undiagnosed. You might be at risk.
