As part of Diabetes Prevention Week (16-22 April), residents across Berkshire, Oxford and Buckinghamshire are being urged to eat healthily and be more active, to help reduce their risk of developing diabetes type 2.

The amount of people in the region over 17, who have diabetes, has increased from 4.3% in 2009/10 to 4.8% in 2016/17, with 76,733 being diagnosed with the condition.

A lack of exercise, poor diet and being overweight are all risk factors in developing the diabetes type 2.
