Type-1 or Type-2 - Diabetes hits record high in UK.
The number of people with diabetes in the UK has hit a record high.
According to the latest figures, 3.9 million now have either the Type 1 or Type 2 condition.
Treating them costs the NHS nearly £10 billion a year – that’s 10 percent of its budget.
And 8 billion of that is spent managing complications – that could be avoided if patients were better educated about the condition.
