The interactive Know Your Risk tool that we manage and host for Diabetes UK has now reached a staggering two million completions.
Know Your Risk lets you find out your risk of developing type 2 diabetes in a couple of minutes, and is a great example of how digital tools can empower users to improve their health from the comfort of their own home. Not only does the tool provide those in the highest categories of risk with printable referral letters for their GPs, it also lets these users find out if they’re eligible to take part in NHS England’s Healthier You Diabetes Prevention Programme, which continues to run online during the pandemic.
The tool has played a vital role in Diabetes UK’s efforts since its launch in 2012, but with recent statistics showing that a third of coronavirus deaths have occurred in people with diabetes, Know Your Risk is now more important than ever in helping people understand how to reduce their risk of type 2 diabetes.
We look forward to another year working closely with Diabetes UK, where we will focus on scaling the tool and helping more people at risk to manage their health in a few simple steps.
