Personally I’d like to see the sums that produced 24,000 deaths a year.
Abusing statistics is a case of the boy who cried wolf and doesn’t do us any favours…

By my rough figures thats over 1% of us dying each year from doing naughty bad diabetic stuff or 20% of newly diagnosed patients each year dying.

Actually @tim add why diabetes UK think its wise or necessary to abuse statistics to the list of questions!
