As more NZ adults and children become overweight and obese their risk of also developing Type 2 Diabetes grows. This type of Diabetes used to only affect adults over 40 years of age and, rarely, children under 18 years. Now obesity is causing 10-year-olds to develop diabetes.

Find out what the NZ Diabetes organisation is doing in NZ to educate people about the prevention, treatment and management of this condition.

Jamie Oliver is also working to debunk some of the myths about this condition which you might find really interesting.
