Diabetes UK has created Know Your Risk Online tool to allow an individual to find out their risk of developing Type 2 diabetes within the next ten years. The Diabetes UK Know Your Risk Online tool was developed in collaboration with the University of Leicester and University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust.
Know Your Risk is evidence-based and consists of seven simple questions related to age, gender, ethnicity, family history, waist measurement, Body Mass Index and blood pressure. It uses a points system to identify if a person is at low, increased, moderate or high risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. Based on this score, advice is provided in the form of lifestyle changes or a GP referral.
Follow the instructions below to find out your risk. This will only take a few minutes, and is an easy and confidential way to find out your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.
