Diabetes In Wales

Right now there are 173,000 people in Wales living with diabetes, and estimates suggest a further 60,000 people in Wales have diabetes but are either unaware or have no confirmed diagnosis.

Another 350,000 people could be at high risk of developing diabetes, and the numbers are rising every year. If current trends continue, by 2025, it is estimated that 288,000 people in Wales will have Diabetes.
