The Healthy Lifestyle Roadshow organised by Diabetes UK and Bupa helped 155 people in Weston find out more about the condition and discover whether they are at risk of developing diabetes.
The roadshow was aimed at identifying some of the estimated 4,300 people in North Somerset who are unaware they have type two of the illness.
Diabetes UK offered free tests to 155 people to predict their risk of developing diabetes in the next 10 years. A total of 86 people were referred to their GP for further advice, as their risk of developing the illness was moderate to high.
