Motion text

That this House supports the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) in its campaign to increase awareness and understanding about Type 1 diabetes; notes that Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes are separate and distinct conditions; acknowledges that Type 1 diabetes is a chronic, life-threatening auto immune condition and is not caused by eating sugary food, by being overweight or by lifestyle choices; further notes with concern that Type 1 is a leading cause of kidney failure, adult blindness, stroke, heart attacks and nerve damage and that incidence of the condition is increasing by four per cent year on year; further notes that approximately five per cent of the entire NHS budget is spent on treating Type 1 diabetes; recognises that JDRF is the world's leading charitable funder of Type 1 diabetes research and the only organisation dedicated solely to finding the cure for Type 1; and believes that more funding for medical research will lead to the development of better treatments for Type 1 diabetes, resulting in fewer complications and hospitalisations, improved cost-efficiencies for the NHS budget and lead to a cure.
