If you have a family history of diabetes or have had gestational diabetes or have polycystic ovaries or are overweight you may be at an increased risk of diabetes.

If so, have a look at the diabetes UK website to see other risk factors for diabetes and if you could benefit from screening:


 A simple blood test can be checked to see if you have diabetes or if you might be at risk of this in the future. 

If you are found to be at an increased risk there is now a course run by the NHS to try and help you make changes that may prevent diabetes from occurring later down the line. 

If you are concerned and would like to have a test then please get in touch with one of our nurses so we can arrange a blood test if indicated.
