It's World Diabetes Day on 14 November 2018 and we're helping to raise awareness of the condition and how to help prevent it.

It's thought that roughly 60% of cases of type 2 diabetes can be delayed or prevented by making lifestyle changes such as eating well, moving more and losing weight, if you're overweight.

If you think you might be at risk of type 2 diabetes, there's a free education programme that covers topics such as healthy diets, appropriate exercise and weight management.

You can find out more about the Healthier You prevention programme and see whether you're eligible to take part.
