Reply to Diabetes UK Slideshow Diabetes The Facts.


Published on

My personal response to the DiabetesUK slideshow from YouTube.

I believe DiabetesUK should be making greater efforts to educate people to lower the risk of diabetes and should also be aiming to reduce diabetics reliance on drug use.
