“It’s estimated around 5 million people across England are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes.”
We know 3 in 5 cases of type 2 diabetes can be prevented, and this can be achieved by making lifestyle changes with the support of your Local NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme.
The NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme is open to those with pre-diabetes to help reduce their chances of developing Type 2 diabetes.
The programme consists of a mixture of 1-to-1 and group sessions delivered by specially trained health and wellbeing coaches. Throughout the programme participants learn how to prevent diabetes by incorporating healthier eating, physical activity, problem-solving, stress-reduction and coping skills into their daily lives.
