As for being physically active, Dr Bunstone reminded people that adults are required to “complete two-and-a-half hours of physical activity a week”.
“Being active is described as anything that gets you out of breath, so this could be walking briskly, climbing stairs, strenuous housework, or exercise classes – it’s up to you.
“There is no one form of exercise that is better at controlling or preventing type 2 diabetes than another.
“Any kind of exercise will have a positive impact as long as it is done regularly.”
