Preventing diabetes has never been more important

The facts

Type 2 diabetes is a really serious disease.

Many people with it experience life-changing complications and symptoms.

There is early evidence of a link between diabetes, unhealthy weight and additional risk of Covid-19 coronavirus complications.

But developing Type 2 diabetes is largely preventable through lifestyle changes.
