Diagnoses

doubles

New data shows a stark increase in

the number of people living with a

diabetes diagnosis. Analysis from

Diabetes UK shows that over 4.1

million adults live with a diabetes

diagnosis in the UK, with 203,499

adults in Wales living with the

condition, 90 per cent of those with

Type 2.

The charity's new figures suggest

that a further 850,000 living with

Type 2 diabetes across the UK and

an additional 61,488 people in Wales

are yet to be diagnosed. Data from

the National Diabetes Audit in 2020

suggests that, including those under

17, the figure is even higher, with

209,015 people with a Type 1 or Type

2 diabetes diagnosis.

Cases of Type 2 diabetes

diagnoses have doubled in the last 15

years. But research has consistently

shown that for some people,

combined lifestyle interventions

- including diet, physical activity

and sustained weight loss - can be

effective in reducing the risk of Type

2 diabetes by about 50%. NHS Wales

estimates that rates will increase to

11.5% of the population by 2030.

Steering

group experts

Diabetes UK has appointed four

new diabetes experts to lead the

Diabetes Research Steering Groups

(DRSGs). DRSGs bring together

people living with diabetes,

healthcare professionals, and

diabetes researchers and help guide

diabetes research in the UK to have

the biggest impact in the areas that

matter most to people living with the

condition. To find out more about

groups, CLICK HERE.
