NHS treating 5,000 diabetics a day as one in 10 patients now suffer with illness, figures reveal

The figure has doubled in a decade and last night the head of the NHS told the Daily Mail: "Our ever-expanding waistlines are taking a growing toll." Simon Stevens warned the "alarming rise" in admissions across the board was putting "voidable pressure" on our hospitals.
