The NHS still 'has a mountain to climb' in the treatment and prevention of diabetes despite Goverment boasts of good progress, experts have said.

NHS diabetes care 'still has mountain to climb', experts warn
Article in the Telegraph:


"Liberal Democrat health spokesman Norman Lamb said: "This report shows the NHS has taken a step in the right direction, but there is still a long way to go before people with diabetes are getting the help they need to manage their condition.

"But what is most striking about the report is what it doesn't say. Almost no mention is made of the big risk that, unless we effectively tackle obesity, the number of people suffering with diabetes will almost certainly increase.

"A diabetes strategy will not be worth the paper it's written on if a greater focus is not put on obesity."

Health Minister, Ann Keen, said: "Today's report shows that the NHS is getting better and better at identifying people with diabetes and at supporting them to manage their condition.

"The Next Stage Review made prevention a priority for the NHS and this is especially relevant to diabetes, as a disease whose global increase in prevalence is partly a consequence of rising obesity.

"Our vascular risk assessment programme, Putting Prevention First is expected to prevent thousands of people developing diabetes each year and our strategy to tackle the rise in obesity will help many more reduce their risk of the disease.""

The best strategy for the prevention of diabetes would tell the truth about what causes obesity and thus what causes diabetes. Plus curb doctors' freedom to prescribe the drugs that frequently cause salt sensitivity/fluid retention/obesity, high blood pressure and diabetes - i.e. mainly steroids such as prednisone, prednisolone and HRT, and tricyclic antidepressants like amitriptyline and imipramine. Plus curb the amounts of salt that manufacturers are allowed to add to to bread and other processed foods BY LAW and UNDER SANCTION.

Obesity is caused by salt sensitivity leading to fluid retention, and is easily and safely reduced/prevented by avoiding salt and salty food. - Sadly the Putting Prevention First makes little mention of salt...

Lose weight, reduce your risk of most cancers, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, stroke, heart disease, vascular dementia, osteopenia, osteoporosis, hypercholesterolaemia, depression, liver and kidney problems, and improve your health in many other ways without drugs or expense by eating less salt! - Try it! - You will feel so much better!
