Making a difference in diabetes

Diabetes is a common life-long health condition. There are 3.2 million people diagnosed with diabetes in the UK and an estimated 630,000 people who have the condition, but don’t know it. (Source:  Diabetes UK)

By 2025 it is estimated that five million people will have diabetes. Most of these cases will be Type 2 diabetes, because of our ageing population and rapidly rising numbers of overweight and obese people. (Source:  Diabetes UK)

Whilst there is no cure for diabetes at the moment, management of the disease has become ever more effective. Roche has worked in the field of diabetes for over 35 years and has become a leader in pioneering developments that allow people with diabetes to monitor and manage their condition.
