Type 2 diabetes is a highly prevalent disease and comes with life changing side effects such as damage to your nerves, heart disease, stroke, vision loss, foot problems, miscarriage and kidney problems.

Up to 33% of people in the UK live with prediabetes, when the blood sugar level is higher than normal but not enough for a Diabetes diagnosis, putting them at high risk of developing full Type 2 diabetes.

Blood tests can check your blood glucose levels to understand the average level of sugar in your blood over the past 3 months and determine whether you may have or be at risk of having diabetes or prediabetes.
