Norfolk Diabetes Prevention Study

We aim to test 10,000 people in Norfolk at risk of type 2 diabetes with a fasting blood glucose test.

Those diagnosed with pre-diabetes will be invited to take part in a research study where we are looking at a new group exercise, diet, information and motivation programme that may reduce the risk of getting diabetes.

You will be supported every step of the way by a trained and dedicated NHS research team who can provide you with the information you need to take the first important step in making lifestyle changes and becoming healthier.

They will help you to stay motivated and continue to support you throughout so that - most importantly - you can maintain your new healthy lifestyle.

If you think you may be at risk and might like to take part, take action and register.

Pre-diabetes is a term used to describe a blood sugar level above normal levels but not high enough to be classed as type 2 diabetes.
