Healthier You: NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme

Healthier You LWTC MPUType 2 Diabetes

Over three million people in England already have Type 2 diabetes and, according to Diabetes UK, it’s estimated that as many as four million people could have the disease by 2025. 

If current trends persist, one in every three people will be obese by 2034 and one in ten will develop Type 2 diabetes. 

Diabetes already accounts for around 10 per cent of the annual NHS budget. This is nearly £10 billion a year. 90 per cent of people with diabetes have Type 2, which is largely preventable.
