TYPE 2 DIABETES AND VISCERAL FAT
EDM #548
Tabled 06 January 2010
2009-10 Session
That this House notes with concern that a recent study into diabetes by GlaxoSmithKline has revealed a link between visceral fat - fat accumulated around internal organs - and type 2 diabetes; is concerned that a survey of 12,000 Europeans found most had no idea that being overweight could be attributed to being at risk of type 2 diabetes; further notes that 90 per cent. of people diagnosed with pre-diabetes are overweight or obese; commends a diabetes study by the University of Oxford that explores the genetic roots of type 2 diabetes; and calls on the Government to increase its efforts to raise the public's awareness of the link between weight and diabetes and to support further research into the area.
