The Risk Score in Bengali, Gujarati or Punjabi and Urdu
Recommended by NICE and used by Diabetes UK, the Leicester Diabetes self-assessment Risk Score was developed to help identify those who are at risk of being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
Now known as the Risk Score, the evidence-based survey consists of several simple questions related to age, gender, ethnicity, family history, waist measurement and blood pressure. It uses a points system to identify if a person is at low, moderate, increased, or high risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Having recognised that Leicester, and indeed many parts of the country, are ethnically and culturally diverse, the survey has since been translated into a number of South Asian languages. The Risk Score is now available in Gujarati, Bengali, Bangladeshi, Urdu and Punjabi.
