THE FIVE KEY OUTCOMES IN

DIABETES UK'S NEW FIVE-YEAR

STRATEGY:

1. More people with T1, T2 and

all other forms of diabetes will

benefit from new treatments that

cure or prevent the condition.

2. More people will be in remission

from T2D.

3. More people will get the quality

of care they need to manage their

diabetes well.

4. Fewer people will get T2 and

gestational diabetes.

5. More people will live better and

more confident lives with diabetes,

free from discrimination.

Our ambition is bigger

than ever before

because the challenges

and opportunities

demand it.

"

"Delivering these outcomes won't happen

overnight," admits Askew, "It requires

a step change in resources coming into

diabetes and will happen more quickly

in some areas than in others. But what

these ambitions and outcomes embody

are our ongoing commitment to working

alongside and learning from people

living with, affected by, and working in

diabetes to make our vision a reality.

The conversation about diabetes in our

society, driven by the media in large

part, has become increasingly divisive,

underplayed, and stigmatising. This must

change in the next five years. And that

change needs to start today."

Easier, better, longer

Our ambition is bigger than ever before

because the challenges and opportunities

demand it. We know we can reach our

vision, but we can only get there by

working together, with you. We need

your experience, your energy, your

fundraising, your determination to deliver

the ambitions at the heart of the next

five years of work. Our success will be

measured by the impact our work has on

the lives of you - people affected by and

at risk of diabetes. But, importantly, it will

also only be possible with your support.

Living with diabetes can be so

hard and its effects can be devastating

for families and loved ones, so while

delivering change is often a complex

challenge, there is hope now like never

before. Diabetes UK expects to lead the

collective effort to making people's lives

healthier, easier, better, longer. We've

come so far already. But we'll need your

help to make our plans a reality. If we all

do one thing, imagine the impact we can

have together. We will reduce the harm

diabetes does. We know diabetes is

relentless. But so are we."

Go figure

Separate from Diabetes UK's new

strategy, the charity has also published

new numbers on diabetes and obesity.

The number of people who are obese

in England has almost doubled in the last

20 years from 6.9m to 13m, according to

new analysis released on WDD2019. The

figures from the Health Survey for England

(1997-2017) estimate that there are now

13m people over the age of 16 with a BMI

of 30 or above which classifies as obese,

an increase of more than 6m since 1997.

In England 29% of adults and 20% of

10-to-11-year-olds are living with obesity

and, although it's not the only factor,

obesity is the most significant risk factor

for new cases of T2D, accounting for 80-

85% of someone's risk. It's the main driver

behind the leap in T2D cases over the last

20 years. According to the charity there

are an estimated 2.85m people diagnosed

with T2D in England, and more than 850k

living with the condition who don't know

they have it because they haven't been

diagnosed − bringing the total number

up to 3.7m. Obesity is contributing to

the increase in gestational diabetes and

the worrying rise in young people with

T2D. Diabetes UK is therefore calling for

sustained government and industry action

on health and obesity.
