Results for England. The National Diabetes Audit 2010-2011 information from here.
Percentage of registered Type 1 patients in England
HbA1c > 6.5% (48 mmol/mol) = 92.6%
HbA1c > 7.5% (58 mmol/mol) = 71.3%
HbA1c > 10.0% (86 mmol/mol) = 18.1%
Percentage of registered Type 2 patients in England
HbA1c > 6.5% (48 mmol/mol = 72.5%
HbA1c > 7.5% (58 mmol/mol) = 32.6%
HbA1c >10.0% (86 mmol/mol) = 6.8%
These results are very similar to those obtained in previous NHS audits over the previous 5 - 6 years.
While writing this article, I found the latest published data re. The National Diabetes Audits 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 which can be found here. As you can see the goal posts have been moved. The only target shown is <58 mmol/mol which equates to an HbA1c of 7.5% we now do not know how many diabetics get to 6.5%, also, we now have no data on how many diabetics are over ten% HbA1c.
Diabetic complications include blindness, kidney failure, lower limb amputation and cardio vascular disease. Highly elevated blood glucose numbers, negatively effect every tissue in the body. Now, if you are still with me, you must be thinking, why oh why, does Diabetes UK not wholeheartedly recommend a low carb diet for all diabetics. Consider this.
Clear thinkers will not be surprised to learn, Diabetes UK is heavily sponsored by Pharma Companies, including Takeda. If you want to know what is going on, in the often murky world of healthcare charities, you must always follow the money.
