Younger men urged to get to grips with T2D risk

Men aged 40 and under are being urged to take a free and simple check to understand their risk of Type 2 diabetes, and not wait for worrying symptoms to appear.

Research commissioned by partners Diabetes UK and Tesco has revealed that men under 40 are most likely to be spurred into action to improve their health by a health scare, or if a health professional such as a GP said they needed to. However, as the signs of having Type 2 diabetes may not be obvious, and with increasing numbers of people aged under 40 developing the life-changing condition, it is vital for even younger individuals to know their risk.

A free, simple and potentially life-saving assessment to better understand individual risk of Type 2 diabetes can be carried out at any of the more than 370 Tesco Pharmacies across the UK, or online via Anyone who completes an assessment will be directed to free advice and information on the help and support available to manage their risk.
