The shimmying took place at Wembley

Stadium on Friday 19 July to everything

from pop and indie to house and hip-hop

in one-hour shifts, with a baton passing

between groups in a 30-hour relay.

The world record-breaking feat took

place along with dance marathon events

in thousands of Tesco stores across

UK throughout June and July, thereby

fundraising and raising awareness

nationwide.

SCANNING

FOR TYPE 2

Specialist measuring of the eye can

predict patients with Type 2 diabetes

and impaired glucose tolerance (IGT),

also known as prediabetes, according

to research presented at this year's

European Association for the Study of

Diabetes (EASD) in early September.

This early pilot study, by Dr Mitra

Tavakoli, University of Exeter Medical

School, showed that measuring the level

of autofluorescence in the lens of the eye

can predict who will develop T2D and

prediabetes, caused by impaired glucose

tolerance. Prediabetes often leads to the

development of T2D. The study used a

newly developed biomicroscope which

can detect advanced glycation endproducts

(AGEs) in the eye via a simple

scan. The increased levels of AGEs in

the body contributes to development of

many diseases, including complications

of diabetes such as retinopathy and

neuropathy. In this pilot study with

20 people with T2D, 20 people with

prediabetes and 20 healthy age-matched

control subjects, there was a significant

increase in AGE levels in the eyes of

people with T2D. It also showed an

increase levels in people with prediabetes.

Dr Emily Burns, Head of Research

Communications at Diabetes UK, said:

"Finding simple and effective ways to

spot the signs of Type 2 diabetes and

its complications will help us to intervene

as early as possible. While this research

points to a new and interesting way to

potentially do that - with a simple eye

scan - it's very early days, and larger

clinical trials are needed to be sure of how

this technique could help in the future."

On 22nd September 2019 people took

to the streets of London to raise money

for JDRF. The family-friendly One Walk

involved participants covering 6 or 10k

to raise funds to help find a cure for Type

1 diabetes. Supporters of the research

charity met at the Oxo Tower Wharf in the

capital's South Bank for a dance warm-up

led by professional dancer and former

EastEnders' star, Jonny Labey.

The actor (pictured) played popular

character Paul Coker, was diagnosed with

Type 1 when he was 15, and became a

celebrity ambassador for the charity in

2018. He said, "I'm delighted JDRF asked

me to open One Walk in London. It's such

a special event because it brings together

hundreds of people who are affected by

Type 1 diabetes. It's a really fun day out,

WALKING TO

ERASE TYPE 1

at the same time we're raising vital funds

to support the charity's research for better

treatments today and to one day find the

cure." wwwjdrf.org.uk
