— Living with Type 1 Diabetes
Due to the ongoing pandemic we still can’t hold face-to-face events. However, after the benefits achieved from our previous on-line events, we know there is still a need and interest for engaging and learning with others, so we’ve organised another virtual event.
Below you will find a link to the latest event we have organised, please take a look.
All events will be via Zoom.
If you are unfamiliar with Zoom and would like some support on how it works then please let us know or to find out more contact : firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that our regional office is presently closed and all staff are working from home so please do not ring the regional office number.
We hope to see you at the event.
— "Know Your Risk" of Type 2 Diabetes
Are you concerned about your risk factors of developing Type 2 Diabetes and heightened risk of complications with Covid-19?
Would you like to know more about Type 2 Diabetes or do your own ‘Know Your Risk’ assessment to find out if you are at risk of Type 2 Diabetes?
You can carry out your own Diabetes ‘Know Your Risk’ assessment by means of an on-line assessment. The tool will ask you for sensitive personal data, for example about your health or ethnicity. This will help provide to you the most relevant information. Diabetes UK promise to store your sensitive personal data securely and keep it confidential. Should the online assessment suggest that you are ‘Moderate’ to ’High’ risk you will be directed to self-refer to your local ‘Healthier You’ NHS Diabetes Prevention Program where you will be given advice on how to minimise your risk.
To date 1,943,691 assessments have been completed using this tool.

Finding out your risk of Type 2 diabetes only takes a few minutes. It could be the most important thing you do today.
