Many people in Southampton are being checked to see if they have type 2 diabetes. Scientists say that a large number of people may have it, but might not know of it. They say that 4 out of 5 people are able to make lifestyle changes that can delay or stop them from getting type 2 diabetes. Scientists particularly said that anyone over 40 that is afro-Caribbean, African American, Chinese, or South Asian has an increased risk of contracting type 2 diabetes. Finding out the risk of type 2 diabetes is rather simple. One can just complete a short questionnaire, which can help you lead a healthier lifestyle.
