Buy SELFCheck Blood Glucose Online in the UK
Type II diabetes is the most frequent form of diabetes in the United Kingdom.
There are an estimated million undiagnosed type II diabetes in the United Kingdom. Diabetes, if left untreated, can cause vascular/circulation disorders, which can result in lower limb amputations, eyesight loss, kidney failure, and strokes. Diabetes mellitus is the most prevalent and serious metabolic disorder. Diabetes patients have insufficient insulin and so are unable to maintain stable glucose levels within the acknowledged normal range of 4-6mmol/L. Some diabetics will require insulin, as well as dietary changes and exercise, to help with long-term insulin control and maintenance.
Weight changes, poor sleep patterns, loss of appetite, thirstiness, and blurred eyesight are among symptoms of type II diabetes. People from specific parts of southern Asia are also at a greater risk of developing diabetes.
Individuals with a family history of diabetes, as well as adults over 40 who are overweight and have a large waist measurement, are at a significant risk of developing diabetes. Anyone who has two or more risk factors should consider getting a blood glucose screening test.
