Diabetes is a condition which causes blood sugar levels to become too high. It is a condition which is lifelong. There are approximately 3.9 million people living with diabetes in the UK which equates to 1 in 16. This figure has nearly trebled since 1996 and it is expected to continue rising. Many more people have blood sugar levels which are higher than the normal range but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes.
It is very important for diabetes to be identified as quickly as possible as the condition can get worse, the longer it is left undiagnosed.
Over 90% of all diabetes sufferers have type 2 diabetes. It can develop slowly over years because the symptoms are general. Type 1 diabetes is much more severe and can develop quickly over weeks and days.
