This week on the 14th of November people got together across the world to raise funds and awareness for World Diabetes Day. In the UK Diabetes is on the rise with the number of people diagnosed with diabetes increasing from 1.4 million to 2.9 million since 1996 it is becoming a dominant health problem. It has been estimated by Diabetes UK that there will be a rise in type 2 diabetes in particular because of our ageing population and rapidly rising numbers of overweight and obese people. To help fight back these looming odds it is important to make healthy lifestyle changes, improve self-management among people with diabetes and improve access to diabetes care services and information.
There are many products available today to help manage Diabetes and the problems and complications it brings. Here are some of our top products for Diabetes:
