NHS initiative could save thousands from developing type 2 diabetes – 'Can be prevented'


A new study has found those with type two diabetes face an increased risk of developing a number of serious conditions.

Research carried out by the University of Cambridge found they were more likely to develop cancer, kidney disease, macular degeneration, neurological issues and eye problems.

Director of Research at Diabetes UK, Dr Elizabeth Robertson said: “This study illustrates in alarming detail the unacceptable prevalence of poor health in middle-aged people with type two diabetes and is a stark reminder of the extensive and serious long-term effects of diabetes on the body.

“That’s why it’s so important that people at increased risk of type two diabetes are supported to reduce their risk, and that those living with the condition have continued access to routine care and support to manage it well and avoid or delay complications.”
