Type 2 Diabetes And Visceral Fat

EDM number 548 in 2009-10, proposed by Keith Vaz on 06/01/2010.
Categorised under the topics of Diseases and Obesity.

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.

This motion has been signed by a total of 45 MPs.
