People with diabetes are not getting the “respect they deserve” amid other competing health priorities, according to TV’s Dr Hilary Jones.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with The Diabetes Times, the celebrity GP said: “We have got this significant condition which is getting a lot worse very quickly and we are only paying lip service to raising awareness and helping people manage it.
“We are not giving it the respect it deserves, we could do a huge amount more to prevent this significant condition.”
The health editor of ITV’s breakfast show, the recently-rebranded Good Morning Britain, has joined forces with Diabetes.co.uk to raise awareness of diabetes.
Diabetes.co.uk is the largest community for people with diabetes in Europe with nearly 100,000 members living with and affected by the condition. Together they also aim to provide education to the diabetes community via the website forum, which helps improve the lives of those with diabetes worldwide.
