The type 2 diabetes epidemic represents a huge public health burden. Given the long latent period of the disease and the high prevalence of complications at diagnosis, there are good arguments for screening. The government has introduced the NHS “Health Checks” programme, to screen all adults aged 40-74 years for diabetes, heart disease, stroke and kidney disease. Using data from epidemiological studies, my lecture will explore the rationale for screening for diabetes and the notion that prevention is better than cure.
