CHECK IT OUT!

In the wake of this year's World Health

Day (April ) which this year focussed on

diabetes, Diabetes UK has been calling

on men of all ages to go online to find

out their risk of Type 2 diabetes by going

online to use its Know Your Risk online

tool. The focus on fellas comes after

findings from one million visits showed

that 38% more women than men are

using the online tool, despite men being at

greater risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

The Know Your Risk tool is a simple

to use online version of a questionnaire

developed by Diabetes UK, the University

of Leicester and the University Hospital of

Leicester NHS Trust. Based on the key risk

factors for Type 2 diabetes such as age,

gender, weight, waist measurement and

ethnicity, it gives a calculated analysis of

an individual's risk of having or developing

the condition.

West Ham coach Tony Carr MBE

has Type 2 diabetes and is keen to raise

awareness of the issue. He says: "When

I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in

2005, I had been losing weight and feeling

terrible. I didn't have a clue what diabetes

was. Since then, I've really worked hard to

take care of myself, eat well and stay active.

To hear that Diabetes UK has already had

one million visits to its Know Your Risk of

Type 2 diabetes tool is really encouraging.

I can't recommend enough that people go

online and check their own risk."

West Ham's captain Mark Noble says,

"It only takes a few minutes to check your

risk of Type 2 diabetes with Diabetes

UK's online test. If you haven't already,

get online and use it. If you are at risk

of Type 2 this test gives you the chance

to take action now. Taking care of your

health isn't just important for footballers

everyone needs to look after themselves

- so check it out!"
