  • Do you know how to use individual and practice-based risk scores to identify who is at increased risk of NDH / T2D and needs a blood test?
  • Does your practice include people who may be at high risk for NDH and T2D, but who are unlikely to be picked up on risk scores?
  • Are you confident about counselling people on how to reduce their modifiable risk factors for NDH or T2D?
  • Are you able to discuss the risk of progression to T2D from impaired glucose regulation / NDH?
  • Does your practice have a clear protocol for how to identify, manage and follow up people at high risk of NDH or T2D?
  • Do you have access to the Healthier You NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme and evidence-based intensive lifestyle intervention programme?
  • Do you know when it is appropriate to offer metformin or orlistat to those with NDH along with guidance on lifestyle change?
