Undiagnosed diabetes21st September 2006
According to an audit carried out by the Department of Health Information Centre for health and social care audit on behalf of the Healthcare Commission, one in five people believed to have diabetes remain undiagnosed and some areas are tackling the problem better than others.
The audit gives comparisons with the expected number of people with diabetes for the area covered by each primary care trust. Diabetes care is improving, but the number of people with diabetes on a register varies across the country from 60 per cent of those expected in some trusts to 115 per cent more than expected in others.
