Diane Abbott, MP for Hackney North and Stoke Newington and was previously Shadow House Secretary revealed yesterday she has type 2 diabetes.

Ms Abbott stated the condition was ‘out of control’ in the course of the marketing campaign.

Kathryn Kirchner, medical advisor, for Diabetes UK stated: “Diabetes happens when the amount of glucose (sugar) in your blood is just too high because your body can’t use it correctly for power.

“This happens as a result of the pancreas both doesn’t produce any insulin, sufficient insulin, or the insulin it does produce doesn’t work correctly.

“There are two fundamental forms of diabetes: Sort 1 and Sort 2. They’re totally different circumstances, brought on by different things, but they are both critical and have to be treated and managed correctly.

“Diabetes is the fastest growing health menace right now.
