People are being given a second chance to find out if they are at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes at the second week of our series of Healthy Lifestyle roadshows being held across Wiltshire.
The roadshows offer a quick and confidential assessment so that people can find out if they may have, or are at risk of developing, Type 2 diabetes. At the events, run by Wiltshire Council and Diabetes UK with the support of the NHS Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group, people can find out about the condition and get important information about diet and physical activity
Roadshows help members of the public find out their risk and discuss healthy lifestyle options, including tips on how to eat a balanced diet and get physically active, with friendly volunteers and dieticians.
Diabetes is serious and can lead to devastating complications such as heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, blindness or amputation. But, if managed properly, people with diabetes can live long, healthy lives.
Cllr Keith Humphries, Conservative cabinet member for public health and protection, said: “We would encourage people to come along to one of our roadshows to learn more about diabetes. Early diagnosis, treatment and good control of diabetes is essential to reduce the chances of developing complications and to improve the chances of people living a long and healthy life."
