Diabetes Resources

Patients with diabetes can find out more about the condition, and book themselves online training, by visiting https://www.diabetes-education-km.co.uk/

Non-diabetic patients who may be at greater than normal risk of developing diabetes - for example people who are overweight or who have raised blood sugar - can visit https://preventing-diabetes.co.uk/ , which has a 'Know your risk' section so you can work out if you're at risk of diabetes or not; plus a self-referral form for the 'Healthier You' diabetes prevention programme.
