Diabetes UK say 42% of people with Type 2 diabetes “not confident managing their condition”

Yes folks it's that time of the month again, and DUK the largest diabetes charity in the UK wheel out their mascot Baroness Barbara Young. Just about every month, the £100 grand a year Barbara tells us it's all doom and gloom "people living with diabetes in the UK has now reached an all-time high of 3.9 million" As always countless diabetics are poorly controlled. So nothing new from DUK. Now, this is bad for the individuals joining the club no one wants to join, but it's very good for business. Make no mistake, for the DUK's of this world, it's a business and business is booming.

Despite all the latest scientific information regarding diet, and the 180 degree turn around by the largest nutritional organisation in the world The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, DUK continue recommending a diet of slow death to diabetics. They have to, they have no choice, they are stuck between a rock and a hard place. For decades they have promoted the wrong dietary information, how do they back peddle that in a hurry? Secondly, DUK's big pharma pay masters would drop them like five pound of condemned veal if they promoted the correct diet.

It is a fact, the correct diet drastically improves the control and well-being of almost all diabetics, the down side for the "diabetes business" almost all diabetics drastically reduce prescribed medication, many type two diabetics gain excellent control with zero medication. Type one diabetics often report insulin reduced to a third of previous requirements when going low carb.

So, we have a situation where the more diabetics that become diagnosed, and the worse their diet and blood glucose control, the more the money to be made by the "diabetes business" And make no mistake, DUK is a business, bought and paid for by big pharma. Until Baroness Barbara Young and her corrupt outfit stop taking the thirty pieces of silver, and promote a safe diet for diabetics, she will continue to offer nothing but doom and gloom.

How long before we hear of class action lawsuits against DUK and dietetic organisations all over the world, it can only be a matter of time before the monumental corruption is exposed. BTW check out Graham's post from last night to see the level of dishonesty that is killing people all over the world on a daily basis. 


From DUK

"A new survey from Diabetes UK has revealed that 42 per cent of people with Type 2 diabetes do not feel confident in managing their condition.

The survey of 2,722 people who attended a Diabetes UK’s Living with Diabetes Days, which is being published during Diabetes Week, suggests that many hundreds of thousands of people with Type 2 diabetes do not have the knowledge and information they need to manage their condition and so reduce their risk of devastating health complications.

There is also potential to save huge costs by ensuring that all people with diabetes get the education they need to prevent avoidable complications from developing. Diabetes currently accounts for 10 per cent of the entire NHS budget, with 80 per cent of this spend totaling £8 billion going on managing complications such as blindness, amputation and stroke.

Given that the number of people living with diabetes in the UK has now reached an all-time high of 3.9 million, Diabetes UK is calling for the Government and the NHS to do more to ensure people get the support and education they need to be able to manage the condition both at the point of diagnosis and beyond.

Barbara Young, Chief Executive of Diabetes UK, said: “It is extremely worrying that so many people with diabetes don’t feel confident at managing their diabetes, as this means huge numbers of people do not have information that could be lifesaving. This makes no sense because the health complications of diabetes are not only devastating but are also extremely costly to treat"
