Diabetes UK 'Measure Up' roadshow a huge success

The Diabetes UK 'Measure Up' Roadshow was a great success, testing 6,741 at-risk-visitors and handing out nearly 20,000 goodie bags.

The Roadshow,  which came to an end last Thursday (22 November), raised awareness of Type 2 diabetes and encouraged people to be tested for the condition.

The campaign started at the end of August and received strong celebrity support from mayoral hopeful Boris Johnson and West Ham footballers Danny Gabbidon and James Collins.

Since then the roadshow has toured the country, stopping off at 21 places, including Newcastle and Gateshead, Hull, Cheltenham and Dover.

Ben Holdstock, Senior Roadshow Organiser, said: "At least one visitor from each roadshow location had been directed to Accident & Emergency after receiving shockingly high blood glucose readings."

This highlights what a significant role the 'Measure Up' Roadshow has played in helping people to identify the condition and preventing further complications.
