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.
