DIABETES RISK SCORE TRANSLATED

The translation of a tool to help people

find out their risk of developing Type 2

diabetes has been described by a leading

diabetes professor as a 'breakthrough' in

support to the South Asian community.

The Leicester Risk Score enables

people to find out their risk of developing

the condition and is recommended by

health watchdog NICE, used by Diabetes

UK and has attracted more than 1.1

million online users.

Gujarati and Bangladeshi versions

were officially launched in January

2017. They will now be used in minority

communities across the East Midlands in

the fight against Type 2 diabetes.

Professor Khunti, one of the cofounders of the Leicester Diabetes Centre,

says, "This is a breakthrough in delivering

support to the South Asian community

in the fight against Type 2 diabetes. The

condition is more common in South

Asians because of their lifestyle in terms of

their diet and lower physical activity levels

combined with their potentially increased

genetic risk. It's important people know

how likely they are to develop the condition

as they can make lifestyle changes to halt

the progress."

Members of the South Asian

community are being urged to make use

of the risk score to find out how likely they

are to develop the condition - or to see

if they already have it. Further versions

of the risk score in Urdu and Gurmukhi

Panjabi are due out soon.
