It’s fascinating that two of our highest-profile female politicians, stay with diabetes: Theresa May was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2013 and Abbott found that she has the more widespread type 2 diabetes two years in the past. The question is whether or not the current media attention will increase awareness, help to uncover the estimated 1 million of us in the UK who’ve undiagnosed diabetes and enhance the remedy of this widespread and probably devastating condition.
The campaigning charity Diabetes UK says: “The luck of where you reside, what sort of diabetes you’ve or your age can determine the quality of your care. There are key targets for managing diabetes when it comes to blood glucose, cholesterol and blood strain. Two out of 5 individuals with sort 2 diabetes meet them – but fewer than one in five individuals with sort 1 diabetes do.”
