.3.8 million people in England aged 16+ had diabetes in 2015. Almost 90% of diabetes cases are Type 2.
Trends suggest by 2035, 4.9 million people could be diagnosed with diabetes. How will this affect your workforce and absence?
Great news, diabetes can be prevented. The best ways to reduce your risk of Type 2 diabetes are eating better, moving more and reducing unnecessary weight.
Research suggests 11-18’s are the worst culprits when it comes to consuming mouthfuls of sugar every day; soft drinks, sweets and chocolate are often consumed in abundance. The 18+ are not much better! Is it time to look at our sweet habits?
