Store to host roadshow with information on diabetes

A Diabetes UK roadshow will visit Asda in Ashington today.

The roadshow is aiming to raise awareness of risk factors for type-two diabetes, as well as promoting more active lifestyles.

Diabetes UK staff will also offer free diabetes risk assessment tests, which indicate a person’s risk of developing the Type 2 diabetes in the next ten years.

Anyone unable to attend the roadshow can still assess their risk of diabetes by taking the free Diabetes UK Risk Score test online at
