Hi, nice to meet you

Dr. Chukwuma Uduku BSc MBBS MRCP PhD

Consultant and Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer in Diabetes and Endocrinology Director of Clinical Studies at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust

As a practicing NHS consultant in diabetes and endocrinology, I believe we are in a state of emergency due the health issues linked to the rising prevalence of obesity and diabetes. An estimated 38% of the UK population are classified as being overweight with over 4.9 million people living with diabetes, 90% of which have type 2 diabetes. Of greater concern is the soaring 13.6 million people considered to be at risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The NHS currently spends 10% of its entire budget on diabetes, with nearly 80% all of this figure spent on treating diabetes related complications. Vascular diseases such as heart attacks, strokes, and renal failure are the most common causes of morbidity and mortality in diabetes, with cancers more recently becoming a leading cause of death.
