    Sunday 12 June 2011 at 11am, Diabetes UK is calling on keen walkers to step forward and sign up for the leading health charity’s Walk the Extra Mile in the Walsall Arboretum People who take part in either a 3 mile or 5 mile walk will help Diabetes UK improve the lives of people with diabetes[2] and all funds raised will go towards supporting research and other diabetes-related projects. Joanna Oldfield, Diabetes UK West Midlands Fundraising Manager, said: “We are extremely pleased to be holding this event once again we always receive such great support for our Walsall walk but would like to encourage more people to get involved and support this fun event. It is shaping up to be a fantastic family day out which is guaranteed to put a spring in your step! “There are around 15,796 people with diabetes in Walsall and an estimated 2,600 who have Type 2 diabetes and don’t know it. It is absolutely vital that we do all we can to support people with diabetes and raise awareness of the condition to the general public. People taking part in Walk the Extra Mile are not just enjoying a great day but they are making a difference.” Diabetes is a serious condition and if not diagnosed early enough or not managed effectively, it can lead to devastating complications including heart disease, stroke, blindness and amputation. Take the Diabetes UK online Risk Score test to see if you could have Type 2 diabetes by visiting www.Diabetes.org.uk/RiskScore
    Registration starts at 10am. Entry is FREE we just ask walkers to raise sponsorship. The walk is suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs. For further information or to register go to www.diabetes.org.uk/walktheextramile or contact Diabetes Walsall UK on 01922 614500

    More details about Diabetes
    1 Diabetes UK is the leading charity for over 3.5 million people in the UK with diabetes In 2011, Diabetes UK aims to spend over £6 million on diabetes research to investigate the causes and prevention of diabetes, to improve care and treatment of diabetes and ultimately to work towards a cure. For more information visit www.diabetes.org.uk. In the UK, there are currently 2.8 million people diagnosed with diabetes and it is estimated that 850,000 people have Type 2 diabetes but do not know it.
    2 Type 2 diabetes develops when the body can still make some insulin, but not enough, or when the insulin that is produced does not work properly (known as insulin resistance). Insulin acts as a key unlocking the cells, so if there is not enough insulin, or it is not working properly, the cells are only partially unlocked (or not at all) and glucose builds up in the blood. Type 2 diabetes accounts for between 85 and 95 per cent of all people with diabetes, usually affects people over 40 (over 25 in people from South Asian and Black backgrounds) and is treated with a healthy diet and increased physical activity. In addition to this, medication and/or insulin is often required. In most cases the condition is linked with being overweight and can go undetected for up to ten years meaning around 50 per cent of people show signs of complications by the time they are diagnosed.
    3 Type 1 diabetes develops when insulin-producing cells in the pancreas are destroyed. This type of diabetes usually appears before the age of 40 and is the least common of the two main types and accounts for around 10 per cent of all people with diabetes. Type 1 diabetes cannot be prevented, it is not known why it develops and it is not connected with being overweight. People with Type 1 diabetes have to take insulin either via a pump or by injections several times a day to stay alive.
    4 One person is diagnosed with diabetes every three minutes in the UK. Diabetes is a serious condition that can lead to heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, blindness and amputation if not managed in the correct way. Diabetes, whether Type 1 or Type 2, is a serious condition. Diabetes costs the NHS £1 million pounds an hour. Almost one in 20 people in the UK have been diagnosed with diabetes. Diabetes causes more deaths than breast and prostate cancer combined.
    5 The Diabetes UK Careline (0845 120 2960) offers information and support on any aspect of managing diabetes. The line is a low cost number and opens Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm (and operates a translation service). Recorded information on a number of diabetes-related topics is also available on this number 24 hours a day.
    6 Supporting our work as a ‘Diabetes UK Supporting Member’ entitles you to a range of benefits including our regular magazine Balance, reliable information booklets on diabetes, our confidential Diabetes UK Careline, over 400 local Diabetes UK support groups, and access to an exclusive personalised ‘Supporting Members Area’ on our website.
