“The system desperately needs a robust and uncompromising attack on the causes of type two diabetes and resolute support for those with type one.” – Keith Vaz MP, Chairman of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Diabetes
Type 2 diabetes is a public health issue
Around 90 per cent of all people with diabetes have type 2 diabetes, which is closely linked to obesity whereby there is strong evidence to suggest it is preventable. Diabetes and related complications cost the NHS £10 billion a year, representing 10 per cent of the annual budget for England and Wales. With the number of patients expected to rise to 4.6 million by 2030, the healthcare system faces a serious challenge.
Prevention is better than cure
The World Health Organisation (WHO) states that type 2 diabetes can be prevented by 30 minutes of daily moderate exercise and a healthy diet. A key challenge is raising awareness and engaging the community to adopt a healthy and active lifestyle. If we want people to adopt healthier lifestyles, we have to make it easier for them to do so.
Join us for the Diabetes Conference where expert speakers will provide an update on the NHS Diabetes programme, discuss successful intervention and prevention strategies and the role new technologies play in reducing the risk and management of diabetes.
