My presentation is on diabetes. Does anyone know anything about at all about diabetes? It is estimated that more than one in 20 people in the UK has diabetes (diagnosed or undiagnosed) and the number of people diagnosed with diabetes has increased from 1.4 million to 2.9 million since 1996.

What is diabetes?
Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person's blood sugar level to become too high. This is because of insulin deficiency.

When someone takes in carbohydrates, it is broken down into glucose which goes into the blood.   Insulin allows glucose from the blood into your body cells where it is converted into energy. If someone has diabetes, they lack insulin or their body is resistant to insulin so the glucose in the blood can’t get into the body cells for energy. So every time the person eats food containing carbohydrates, glucose stays in the bloodstream and the blood glucose levels may rise dangerously.
Differences between Type 1 and 2
- There are two types of diabetes. Type one and type two. Type 1 is genetic whereas type 2 is developed by lifestyle, for example obesity. Type 1 is most commonly found in childhood and type 2 generally developed in adults over 40.
There is Type 1 diabetes which is where no insulin is produced as the body destroys the insulin producing cells and Type 2 which is where either not enough insulin is produced, or your body is unable to use the insulin that is produced.

Why is it that the rate of diabetes has grown so much recently?
