The NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme (NHS DPP) is a joint commitment from NHS England, Public Health England and Diabetes UK to deliver, at scale, evidence based behavioural interventions that can prevent or delay the onset of Type 2 diabetes in adults who have been identified as having non-diabetic hyperglycaemia.
This report uses data collected alongside the National Diabetes Audit (NDA) for the period January 2017 to March 2018 inclusive.
This report is for England only. Unlike the NDA, it does not include information on Wales.
Non-diabetic hyperglycaemia refers to blood glucose levels that are above normal but not in the diabetic range (HbA1c 42-47 mmol/mol (6.0-6.4%) or fasting plasma glucose 5.5-6.9 mmol/l).
People with non-diabetic hyperglycaemia are at increased risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. They are also at increased risk of other cardiovascular conditions.
1.3 million people in England are recorded as having non-diabetic hyperglycaemia, and 2.9 million people with diagnosed Type 2 diabetes.
People with NDH and Type 2 diabetes are more often overweight or obese (BMI greater than 25) in comparison to the general population, but this is not always the case.
People with NDH are slightly more likely to live in areas of higher deprivation, compared to the general population. This pattern is more pronounced for people with Type 2 diabetes.
