Type 2 diabetes is serious.
It develops when your pancreas can't produce enough of a hormone called insulin or when the insulin it does produce doesn't work properly. If your body doesn't have the right amount of insulin, or if your insulin isn't doing its job properly, you can become seriously ill.
Diagnosed early it's manageable. Left unchecked, Type 2 diabetes can cause devastating complications like blindness, heart attacks, stroke and amputation. That's why it's so important to check your risk.Find out more about Type 2 diabetes
This is the UK's biggest ever Type 2 diabetes awareness campaign.
Made possible through our National Charity Partnership with Tesco, the campaign will be visible across the UK through outdoor, digital and radio advertising.
That means we'll be able to reach millions of people, letting them know what puts them at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes and that there's something they can do about it. As a result, thousands of people could delay or prevent being diagnosed in the first place.
