Over 5 million people in the UK are at risk of  developing Type 2 diabetes.

Type 2 represents 90% of all diabetes and is largely caused by lifestyle factors. The good news is that it can be avoided by making changes

in diet and exercise habits.


Our mission is to support you in making your own changes to reduce

the likelihood of you developing Type 2 diabetes and

its associated health complications.
