Finding out you are prediabetic may feel scary. But it could also be the wake-up call needed to make positive changes to the way you live.

In 2021, Merck KGaA celebrated "Home Truths" – changes people had made to their lifestyles in lockdown, impacting their risk of diabetes, for better or worse. Through an extensive survey, reaching 8,000 people across 8 countries, these truths then shaped tailored, regional campaigns that informed people about their changing risk of diabetes and promoted pre-emptive action to reduce this risk – including a Guinness world record for the most people ever tested for prediabetes - 47,000!
