Frequent Asked Questions

· Requirements

Renewed warnings of an 'epidemic' of diabetes as cases hit a peak in 2007 of 2.5 million with 167,000 new cases recorded between April 2007 and March 2008. The rise is more than double the increase of 83,000 recorded the year before. At the same time, the number of people registered as obese has gone up, from almost 4.8 million last year to five million. The soaring rate of Diabetes type 2 - the kind that mostly affects the middle-aged - is being fuelled by obesity (Diabetes UK).
