Diabetes UK will be holding their BIG Collection Weekend from Friday 13th to Sunday 15th June this year and I’ve just volunteered to get involved at my local store.

I’m happy to say that at the moment my risk of contracting diabetes is at the lowest possible level, as confirmed by the free online testing at: http://www.diabetes.org.uk/Tesco/Know-your-risk/Diabetes-UK-Online-Risk-Score/

However that still means I have a 1 in 20 chance of developing diabetes in the next 10 years, a statistic that surprised me and not in a good way. Diabetes is the fastest growing health threat in the UK.
