Prediabetes talks

prediabetes posterOur Wellbeing team is hosting free pre-diabetes talks to help local people who are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

The number of people being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes is increasing nationally and developing the condition means an increased risk of developing serious complications such as blindness, heart attack, stroke and amputation. Thankfully it's possible to reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by making some key lifestyle changes like eating well, being active and maintaining a healthy weight.

Those most at risk of developing type 2 diabetes people with a family history of the condition, a Body Mass Index (BMI) over 25 and those who have been identified by a health professional as pre-diabetic.

The pre-diabetes workshops show people how they can take control for themselves and reduce the risk of developing the condition. The course looks at small and manageable steps that individuals can take to avoid developing type 2 diabetes, such as changes to diet, activity levels and other lifestyle factors.

The pre-diabetes workshops take place at 

East Grinstead Library 

13 May, 2pm-4pm

Cherry Tree Centre, Burgess Hill

24 May, 10am-12pm
7 June, 10am-12pm
