The number of people diagnosed with diabetes in the UK has increased by more than 150,000 to 2.8 million in the past year, warns Diabetes UK today.
The data, collected from GP practices, also show the nationwide figure of people registered as obese to have risen to over five and half million, an increase of more than 265,000. This now means one in 20 of the population is being treated for diabetes and one in ten for obesity.
Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) has been granted £20,000 from the Scottish Government’s South Asia Development Fund to deliver a programme in the management of diabetic foot disease in India that could prevent diabetes related limb amputations. Our Podiatry experts are training phsyicians in India next month.
We also have Masters level programmes in Diabetes Care and Management.
