    What’s the deal with Diabetes?
    Diabetes is the UK’s fastest-growing threat. Shocking statistics show that every 4 minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with Diabetes.
    At present over 3 million people now have Diabetes, either Type 1 or Type 2.
    It is estimated a further 1,000,000 have diabetes but don’t know they do. If this isn’t managed properly with medication and a good diet it can be fatal.
    Complications to this disease can cause limbs to be amputated, kidney failure, blindness, stroke and death.

    Know the risks
    An estimated 7,000,000 people in the UK at risk of Type 2 Diabetes. The risk factors are:
    * Age
    * Ethnicity
    * Family History
    *Weight, especially if you have a large waist
