Type 2 diabetes in the UK.

From Insulin usage in type 2 diabetes mellitus patients in UK clinical practice: a retrospective cohort-based analysis using the THIN database:-

"Importantly, this analysis has been conducted using routine data from UK clinical practice, which allows an insight into how patients are managed in current UK practice. In summary, this study demonstrates a persisting delay both in oral therapy escalation and insulin initiations in patients with type 2 diabetes, with a relative reduction in the effectiveness of oral therapy escalation. There is an apparent threshold HbA1C of > 8.5% beyond which additional oral therapy in routine practice appears unlikely to achieve an HbA1C target ≤ 7.0%.
This study thus highlights the need for more timely escalation of glucose-lowering therapy, including insulin initiation, in order to limit unnecessary patient exposure to hyperglycaemia and associated serious consequences, such as macro-vascular and micro-vascular complications."

An HbA1C of 7.0% still results in macro-vascular and micro-vascular complications. If someone develops type 2 diabetes in the UK, the NHS isn't going to save them. They have to save themselves.

People who have Impaired Glucose Tolerance need to take action to prevent their condition from deteriorating into full-blown Type 2 diabetes. See

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of
your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
Maybe you could space it out better?

Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this website. It's simple, yet
effective. A lot of times it's tough to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say that you've done a great job with this.
In addition, the blog loads very quick for me on Chrome.
Excellent Blog!

Hi, Neat post. There is an issue along with your web site in web explorer, could test this?
IE still is the market chief and a good element of other people will omit your wonderful writing
because of this problem.

I'm really enjoying the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues? A couple of my blog visitors have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this problem?
