Men unaware they have diabetes
Men over 50 are nearly twice as likely
to have undiagnosed Type 2 diabetes
than their female counterparts, warns
charity Diabetes UK.
A study of 6,739 52 to 19 year olds
published in the journal Diabetic
Medicine found that 502 had diabetes.
Of the men with diabetes, 22% did not
realise they had diabetes before the
study compared to 12% of the women.

of diabetes as well as info about the
