NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme: NHS DPP (BBC News / PHE / NHS England)

Summary

The latest estimates from Public Health England (PHE) indicate that up to five million people in England could be at risk of developing type-2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes (which is related to obesity and diet) costs the NHS between £8 billion to £10 billion each year. Type-2 diabetes affects roughly 3.2 million people in the UK. Diabetes is thought to cause 22,000 premature deaths per year in addition to accounting for perhaps 10% of the entire NHS budget.

Association Between Smoking Cessation and Risk of Type 2 Diabetes

Stopping smoking can lower the risk of type 2 diabetes. Analysis of 88 studies on smoking risk and type 2 diabetes indicates that current smokers are about 1.4 times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes compared with non-smokers. The risk of developing diabetes does rise slightly (to about 1.5 times) for several years after quitting smoking, but it falls to 1.2 times after five years of smoking cessation.
