A pioneering health study in Norfolk is aiming to help stop people developing diabetes . Diabetes news this morning indicates that the study has attracted its 1,000th volunteer.
The two-year programme is being conducted by the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital alongside the University of East Anglia. The aim is to screen 6,000 volunteers, who take a simple blood test to assess glucose levels and risk of diabetes .
Those who indicate a risk of type 2 diabetes will then be asked if they wish to take part in a training program to try and stop diabetes development . Those people in Norfolk who are overweight, have heart disease, or have an immediate family member with diabetes can volunteer by calling 01603 597300 or visiting Uea-ifg.nhs.uk.
