Diabetes Prevalence by Ethnic
Group in England (Health Survey for England 2004)
T2D & Health Inequalities

Socioeconomically disadvantaged
T2D Risk Factors for BME in UK
Biological (age & sex)
Lifestyle/behaviour, incl. (over)weight
Lack of knowledge/screening
Early childhood malnutrition changes the way
the body functions.
Changes in glucose insulin metabolism
reduce insulin secretion and increase insulin
resistance and in combination with age and
other lifestyle factors can increase the risk of
type 2 diabetes among ethnic minority groups.
Intervention Rationale & Aim
Culturally appropriate

Awareness + Action

Reduce BME T2D incidence in UK

Provide support

1. Increased understanding of disease through

2. T2D is preventable and its onset delayed.
3. People with T2D can have a good life
4. New treatments methods are there.
5. Self-care improves outcomes.
