The people of Cookstown are invited to find out their risk of getting Type 2 diabetes and valuable information about how to reduce it at Diabetes UK’s Know Your Risk Roadshow, which rolls into town on Friday 29 July.
Delivered by Diabetes UK in partnership with Tesco, the roadshow will be at Cookstown Tesco, Orritor Road, from 10am-5pm.
Members of the public can visit to find out their risk of Type 2 diabetes free of charge, by answering some simple questions and having their height, weight and waist measured.
In Northern Ireland there are over 86,000 people living with diabetes, 90% of which have Type 2. Poorly managed, diabetes can cause devastating complications such as amputation, blindness, kidney failure and stroke.
