According to research conducted by the British Heart Foundation, the number of adults in the UK with diabetes has risen by over 65% over the last 10 years.
The research shows that last year 3,453,054 people were diagnosed with diabetes. Around 90% of these cases were type 2 diabetics, the sort associated with unhealthy lifestyles and obesity.
Type 2 Diabetes
Type 2 diabetes causes a build-up of fatty deposits in the arteries and because of these people with the condition are up to five times more likely to have a heart attack or stroke.
There are several risk factors for developing type 2 diabetes, including:
- Age – being over the age of 40
- Genetics – having a close relative with the condition
- Weight – being overweight or obese
- Ethnicity – being South Asian, Chinese, African-Caribbean or black African origin
- High blood glucose levels – Known as pre-diabetes, this is when your blood glucose levels are higher than normal.
Approximately 1 in 3 UK adults is currently in the 'pre-diabetes' category.
If you have pre-diabetes it means your blood sugar levels are too high, and you have a greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes or even heart disease. Natural supplements can help to control the level of sugar in your blood so it does not reach a dangerous level.
