Spotlight on Diabetes Awareness Week

One in 15 people live with diabetes in the UK – that’s 4.7 million people and more than the number of people with cancer and dementia combined.

Worldwide, 422 million people have diabetes and there are three main types of the condition: Type 1, Type 2 and gestational diabetes.

This Diabetes Awareness Week we chat to Amanda Malinga at The Diabetes Care Centre at Mile End Hospital and in this video she shares a special message with you.

Newham University Hospital is leading the way in digital innovation with virtual video consultations for diabetes patients and, we summarise the successes of the recent Tower Hamlets Together event for patients with diabetes.

Finally, see if you can answer our poll about Type 2 diabetes - the answer will be revealed on Twitter this Friday.
