    It has been recommended by UK researchers that patients, regardless of their metabolic rate, should be given weight management advice as people with obesity were still at risk of diabetes, cardiovascular and respiratory diseases. A recent study found that regardless of your metabolic rate, it did not necessarily mean that the patient with obesity were healthy and that doctors should avoid using the term “metabolically healthy obesity” as it could be misleading.

    A concise training programme aimed at informing healthcare staff about diabetes has the potential to significantly improve patient safety, according to researchers. The programme, which was developed by the North West London Collaboration of Clinical Commissioning Groups, has been linked with a reduction in diabetes-related errors. The Diabetes 10 Point Training Programme was initially created with the aim of improving inpatient safety by ensuring frontline staff have access to diabetes training. Researchers from the CCG collaboration noted that the annual National Diabetes Inpa

    Diabetes technology, in particular real-time continuous glucose monitoring (rt-CGM) devices are revolutionising the management of type 1 diabetes (T1D). The devices provide important advances in blood glucose monitoring technology that address the unmet need for detection of day-to-day glycaemic variability and patient-specific patterns of hyper- and hypoglycaemia. Currently it is estimated that less than 5% of people with T1D are using continuous glucose monitoring to manage their diabetes1 and the access to this technology can vary significantly between clinical commissioning groups2 cr

    The mother of a man who died after suffering neglect said she felt "extreme distress and anger" at a critical new report into his care home. James Delaney, 37, died while he was a resident at Sapphire House in Bradwell, Norfolk, in July 2018. After an inadequate rating by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), Mr Delaney's mother said she felt lessons had not been learned from her son's death. A spokeswoman for operator Crystal Care said it had "addressed all concerns". Mr Delaney, who died of a diabetes-related illness, was required to take insulin twice a day, but, despite staff n

    A cohort of scientists from across the world believe that there is a growing body of evidence that COVID-19 can cause diabetes in some patients. Prof Francesco Rubino, from King’s College London, is leading the call for a full investigation into a possible link between the two diseases. Having seen a rise in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes in people who have caught coronavirus, some doctors are even considering the possibility that the virus ‒ by disrupting sugar metabolism ‒ could be inducing an entirely new form of diabetes. Rubino and others set up a registry to start pooling and

    A study is under way in the Southern Health Trust area to investigate possible links between Type 1 diabetes and COVID-19. A consultant paediatrician said there has been an increase in the number of young people being diagnosed since the beginning of the pandemic. Last year, the trust said there were 41 new cases, its highest yearly total on record. Dr Sarinda Millar specialises in Type 1 diabetes in children and young people. "We are having more diagnoses, specially since the start of 2021 but more last year, as well," she said. "...in January we had nine new cases of Typ

    Some pregnant women who have had gestational diabetes say a change to shielding advice in England has caused confusion. Some have been told to stay at home while others have not, based on a new algorithm which calculates an individual's risk from Covid. It identified an extra 1.7 million people as extremely clinically vulnerable in England this week. They will now be prioritised for a Covid vaccine. NHS England says not everyone with the same condition will be advised to shield but suggests people contact their GP to discuss their individual case. Heather Davi

    The Professional Records Standard Body (PRSB) are holding a workshop on 4 March to help us develop a shared decision-making standard, so that individuals can be more involved in the decisions that affect their health, care and wellbeing. The online workshop will bring together health and care professionals, patients and system vendors to focus on different topics including diabetes and other long-term conditions, mental health, child health, gynaecology, colorectal cancer, genetic conditions, multi-medications and orthopaedics.

    The family of a man who bled to death during kidney dialysis treatment at Royal Shrewsbury Hospital have said they believe lessons have been learned. Mohammed Ismael Zaman, known as Bolly, died after hospital staff failed to check the connection on his dialysis machine, despite it sounding an alarm after the catheter had become disconnected. During Mr Zaman’s treatment at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital on October 18, 2019, his dialysis machine set off a venous pressure alarm. An unidentified member of staff reset the alarm without checking that the connection was still secure. As

    "It's a full-time job that you can't quit. It's a massive burden that you didn't ask for, didn't expect." Diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 19, Naomi, now 33, says she reached a point where she simply could not handle "the physical or mental challenges of diabetes any more", a condition known as "diabetes burnout". About 250,000 people in England have type 1 diabetes, which means the body cannot produce insulin, the hormone that controls blood sugar levels. It can lead to organ damage, eyesight problems and - in extreme cases - limb amputation. But for many there is also a

    More than a quarter of all NHS patients who have died after being infected with COVID-19 had diabetes, according to new statistics from NHS England. Between 31 March and 12 May, a total of 5,873 patients with diabetes died in hospital from COVID-19, 26% of all coronavirus deaths. It is the first time data on hospital deaths and underlying health conditions has been revealed by the NHS. People with diabetes have previously been described as being at moderate risk from the virus and were not part of the groups told to shield themselves in their homes due to fears they were at extr

    Tens of thousands of people avoided going to hospital for life-threatening illnesses such as heart attacks during Britain's coronavirus crisis, data has revealed. Shocking figures reveal that admissions for seven deadly non-coronavirus conditions between March and June fell by more than 173,000 on the previous year. Previous data for England shows there were nearly 6,000 fewer admissions for heart attacks in March and April compared with last year, and almost 137,000 fewer cancer admissions from March to June.

    The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically curtailed the provision of health services for non-communicable diseases, says a survey of 155 countries by the World Health Organization conducted over three weeks in May. In the survey poorer countries were the most likely to report disrupted services, but some 94% of responding countries had reassigned health ministry staff from work on NCDs to dealing with the pandemic. Hypertension treatment has been partially or completely disrupted in 53% of the countries surveyed, diabetes treatment in 49%, cancer treatment in 42%, and cardiovascular emergenc
