Diabetes is extremely common in South Asian populations, including those who live in Scotland. More and more people are developing the disease and therefore we need, urgently, to find ways of preventing it.
Work is currently taking place amongst Indians and Pakistanis in Glasgow and Edinburgh to test out ways to prevent diabetes. It is thought that diabetes can be prevented by maintaining a healthy weight and being physically active.
170 families from Edinburgh and Glasgow have been recruited to the study.
