A systematic review

Participants wore wristbands to monitor their sleep patterns and how often they ate.

More than four million people in the UK are living with type 2 diabetes and the National Health System spends more than £ 10 billion a year to treat the condition and its complications, which include ulcer, amputations and eye damage.

The 18.000 fewer diagnoses linked to the prevention program represent a 7% reduction in new cases between 2018 and 2019.

One million patients have been referred to follow this program since it was launched in 2016. It was found that those who completed it were able to reduce the risk of developing the condition by 37%.

This research underscores the importance of focusing on prevention and providing advice on healthy eating, food choices and exercise.
