According to reports from leading health charity Diabetes UK, as many as twenty people are diagnosed with diabetes every day in Wales. The charity, who released the shocking statistic to mark their 75th anniversary, claim that the number of people diagnosed with the conditions is soaring.
The national director of Diabetes UK cymru, Dai Williams, reportedly commented: “Diabetes UK Cymru wants the Government to put diabetes at the top of the health agenda in 2009. People need to be supported to make changes to their lifestyle, such as eating healthily, losing weight if appropriate and being physically active, in order to reduce their risk of developing Type 2 diabetes .”
He reportedly continued: “We also need to make sure that anyone diagnosed with the condition has access to the best possible care, information and support in order to reduce their risk of developing the serious complications of the condition.”
