The National Health Service has set up T2Day: Type 2 Diabetes in the Young, a programme of intensive and targeted care for people aged 18 to 39 years, which offers tailored health checks and support with diabetes management. This will support those individuals to lead healthier lives and, in some cases, put their type 2 diabetes into remission.

In addition, the existing NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme supports those identified at high risk of type 2 diabetes to reduce their risk. Latest figures in February 2023 show a 20% reduction in risk for those who are referred to the programme compared to those who are not.
