Smart About Diabetes

Most people have little or no signs when it comes to Cardiovascular disease or Diabetes. Understanding your risk and when to get tested is imperative.

Cardiovascular disease can lead to heart attacks at stroke, however, there are very few symptoms. We talk about what to watch out for, when to get check-ups, and how to keep the cardiovascular system healthy.

  • Heart and circulatory diseases cause more than a quarter of all deaths in the UK, that’s nearly 170,000 deaths each year – an average of 460 deaths each day or one every three minutes in the UK.
  • In the UK there are more than 100,000 heart attacks each year.  That’s one every five minutes.

Nearly 3.8 million adults in the UK have been diagnosed with diabetes, with around 900,000 more thought to be undiagnosed

More people than ever have diabetes. More people than ever are at risk of Type 2 diabetes. If nothing changes, more than five million people will have diabetes in the UK by 2025.

We don’t just focus on diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Join us for a session on weight management and creating a supportive environment that encourages employees to practice healthy behaviours.  Opportunities to be physically active and access to good nutrition are essential.

We also talk about weight bias in the workplace.
