Pre-Diabetes

Pre-diabetes is a health condition that means your blood glucose level is higher than normal but not yet high enough for you to be diagnosed with diabetes.

Many people with pre-diabetes are overweight or obese at diagnosis and 90 per cent will either have a family history of pre-diabetes or have high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

Crucially, pre-diabetes can often be reversed and the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes reduced by 60 per cent, simply through losing even just a moderate amount of weight, adopting a healthy, balanced diet and increasing physical activity levels.

The NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme (NHSDPP) has been designed to identify those at high risk and support them to maintain a healthy weight and be more active. You can find out more about the NHSDPP at https://preventing-diabetes.co.uk/

You can self-refer to the NHSDPP at https://preventing-diabetes.co.uk/self-referral/

Your GP or Nurse can also make the referral on your behalf, so please do contact the surgery if you would like to be referred to this programme.
