A ROADSHOW giving more information on diabetes is coming to Portsmouth.

As previously reported, The Diabetes UK’s Healthy Lifestyle Roadshow is stopping off in Commercial Road, Portsmouth, tomorrow and Saturday, from 9am to 5pm.

People will be offered a free risk assessment to see if they could develop Type II diabetes, highlighting risk factors and encouraging members of the public to change their lifestyles.

Jill Steaton, south east regional manager, said: ‘Diabetes is one of the biggest health challenges facing the UK today.

‘Worryingly, there are around 2,300 people in Portsmouth that have Type II diabetes, but have no idea they do.

‘I would urge everyone who can to visit the roadshow.’
