Roadshow aims to highlight diabetes

RESIDENTS in the Bognor Regis area are being urged to find out if they are at risk from diabetes.

Residents can find out if they are in danger of developing type two diabetes by visiting the Diabetes UK Healthy Lifestyle Roadshow, being run in partnership with Bupa.

The roadshow will visit the Place St Maur next Wednesday (August 21) to offer free, quick and pain-free risk assessments so that people can find out if they may have, or are at risk of developing the disease.

The condition is serious and can lead to devastating complications such as heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, blindness or amputation.

But, if managed properly, people with diabetes can live long, healthy lives. People found to be at moderate to high risk will be referred to their GP for further tests.
