Type 2 Diabetes Prevention Week 2023

Date: 25/05/2023

This week (22 – 28 May) is Type 2 Diabetes Prevention Week, a joint campaign from NHS England and Diabetes UK that aims to raise awareness of the risk of type 2 diabetes and how to avoid it.

There are 13.6 million people in the UK at increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes. But for many people there are steps you can take to reduce your risk.

A free, simple and potentially life-saving assessment to better understand individual risk of type 2 diabetes can be carried out at any of the more than 370 Tesco Pharmacies across the UK, or online via the Know Your Risk tool.
