Justin urges local people to get tested during Diabetes Awareness Week

Diabetes has an enormous human and economic impact in the UK. A total of 4 million people have the condition and 10% of UK health expenditure is spent on Diabetes. Even more shocking is that 80% of this money is spent on avoidable complications. The latest statistics show that 12% of adults with diabetes are undiagnosed. This needs to change. That’s why Justin Madders MP for Ellesmere Port & Neston is supporting Diabetes Awareness Week, held during the week 12th – 18th June.

Justin says, “Diabetes, obesity and other preventable conditions present a drastic threat for the future of our National Health Service, and affect many people here in Ellesmere Port & Neston. Diabetes Awareness Week highlights easily accessible testing for this condition and I encourage local people to get tested for diabetes at their local pharmacy. Early testing and diagnosis can make a real difference.”
