"A third of cases were asymptomatic and detected on obesity screening investigations, highlighting the importance of screening for type 2 diabetes in higher risk children".

Peter Shorrick, interim head in the East of England at Diabetes UK, said: "Unless we act, and urgently, diabetes prevalence will continue to rise".

Candler and colleagues analyzed cases of type 2 diabetes diagnosed in children between May 2015 and April 2016, using the British Paediatric Surveillance Unit reporting framework, a prospective monthly surveillance of more than 3,400 pediatricians in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

"We have to take action now so that we can live in a world where fewer people have diabetes in the future".

"For the last 20 years no serious strategy has been produced to tackle it". It is important to establish the best way to manage and engage young people with type 2 diabetes due to the poor outcomes in those diagnosed at a young age. He was 18 stone.
