The latest estimated number of people living with Type 2 diabetes in Bromley is 22,951 and in Bexley it is 15,621. Insulin helps glucose get into the body's cells.

There is no known way to prevent type one, which occurs when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin, the hormone that regulates blood sugar levels. Over the long-term high glucose levels are associated with damage to the body and failure of various organs and tissues.

Primarily driven by the acceptance of latest approved therapeutics products and premium products in the pipeline, the market for type 1 diabetes treatment is now thriving at a considerable pace. Type one is can develop at any age but occurs more frequently in children.

Diabetes is essentially referred to a group of diseases that result in too much sugar in the blood.

Type1 and type 2 diabetes and gestational diabetes are the three main types of diabetes.

For Canadians living with Type 1, insulin is vital and the only medically recognized way to treat the disease, said Dr. Harpreet Bajaj, the principal investigator of the Canadian Diabetes Prevention Program. It is characterised by insulin resistance and relative insulin deficiency, either or both of which may be present at the time diabetes is diagnosed.

"The term [is] used to describe the small number of people with apparent Type 2 diabetes who appear to have immune-mediated loss of pancreatic beta cells", she said.

Insulin prequalification is one of a number of steps World Health Organization will take in the coming year to address the diabetes burden. However, any disruption in the production of insulin may shoot the level of glucose in the blood.

A healthy diet and regular exercise is also very important for Type 2 diabetes management as well as for overall health, Bajaj said. However, over time most people will require oral drugs and/or insulin.

In England, 29 per cent of adults and 20 per cent of 10 to 11-year-olds are living with obesity and this is contributing to the increase in gestational diabetes and type 2 diabetes, it further revealed.

Diabetes and cardiovascular diseases often appear as the two sides of a coin: on one side, diabetes mellitus has been rated as an equivalent of coronary heart disease, that is if you have diabetes and have never had a heart attack, you are at the same risk for cardiovascular complications as a person with no diabetes but who previously has had a heart attack.

Assessments done in areas like Manicaland, where Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) is supporting the Ministry of Health and Child Care (MoHCC) to provide treatment to patients with diabetes and hypertension, show that there is a shortage of monitoring tools like glucometers, glucometer strips and reagents for laboratories.

In certain circumstances, it can be hard to distinguish between type 1 and type 2 diabetes (see Table 1). The degrees of resistance and deficiency vary, but insulin deficiency is key to developing diabetes. By far the greatest number of seafarers now working on merchant vessels come from the Philippines.

Diabetes is not a disease and can be easily managed provided its root causes are clear and enables the treating doctor to chart out the right course of treatment.

If someone in your house has diabetes or high blood pressure, you're most likely spending 120% more money on healthcare than someone without a family member with diabetes or blood pressure. Obesity and lack of physical activity increases the chance of becoming a type 2 diabetic patient. The centre is paving the way towards improved biomarkers and focused treatments, or precision medicine for diabetes, in order to tackle this globally devastating disease.

"Type 2 diabetes is a progressive disease", he said.

Before immediately jumping onto insulin, a few diet and lifestyle changes will go a long way in keeping sugar levels in check.
