Type 1 Diabetes Research

EDM number 15 in 2014-15, proposed by Adrian Sanders on 04/06/2014.
Categorised under the topics of Diseases, Health education and preventive medicine and Research and innovation.

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.

This motion has been signed by a total of 35 MPs.
