Diabetes UK Response To Change4Life Announcement
"These children are now going to have to live with diabetes for the rest of their lives and are at risk of serious health problems such as heart disease, stroke, amputations, kidney failure and blindness.
"There is no getting away from the fact that the obesity crisis has led to the rapid increase in children diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and so we welcome any initiative that promotes physical activity, a healthier diet and that raises awareness of the serious implications of a sedentary lifestyle and poor diet."
