ANITA RANI TESTED THE WOMEN'S RISK OF DEVELOPING TYPE 2 DIABETES
A new ITV documentary set to air in June, Diabetes: Fast Fix, caught the interest of our women after they got their chances of developing Type 2 diabetes tested.
Ruth Langsford, Coleen Nolan, Nadia Sawalha and guest panelist Mel B were joined by Anita Rani, who is presenting the documentary, to reveal the results of the test.
Coleen and Nadia completed an online test that put them in the 'moderately high risk' category, meaning they have a 1 in 7 chance of getting Type 2 diabetes in the next 10 years.
The group also had blood tests that put Ruth and Nadia in the 'normal' zone, while Coleen was placed in the 'pre-diabetic zone'.
But, as new research shows Type 2 completely controllable through lifestyle and diet, this isn't terrible news.
'I'm not shocked by the results, because my mum and sister both had Type 2 diabetes in later life, and because of how I eat, I knew I was prone to it,' says Coleen. 'The reason this doesn't terrify me is because I know I can do something about it.'
Type 2 diabetes currently affects 3.5 million people in the UK and up to another 1 million people who aren't aware they have it. But 12 million Brits have an increased risk of getting it too, based on their lifestyles.
