Glynett Morgan, 39, has had Type 2 diabetes since 2015. The support worker from Braunston said: “I think Cities Changing Diabetes sounds like a great idea as most people still do not really know what Type 2 diabetes is.

“There needs to be more education about the condition and how it can be prevented. For all those people who may be carrying extra weight or are on the verge of being diagnosed, I urge them to do all they can to avoid getting the condition.”
“I’ve had type 2 diabetes since 2015 and when I was diagnosed it took time for me to get used to the idea. I was in denial for a while. When I saw my doctor he told me I could beat if I wanted to through diet and exercise. So, I started being careful with what I was eating and became a bit more active and I lost some weight.
