72,000 plus people in Wales have undiagnosed type 2 diabetes, according to recent figures.
A leading Welsh charity has urged that this group needs to be diagnosed and treated.
Otherwise, the complications that could follow include amputation, blindness, heart disease, stroke and kidney failure .
Diabetes Health Intelligence figures, part of the Yorkshire and Humber Public Health Observatory, highlight that around a third of Wales’ diabetic population remains undiagnosed.
In certain parts of Wales, this figure is considered to be more than 40%.
Diabetes UK Cymru is urging for screening initiatives, like those in England, to be readily available in Wales in order to identify individuals with type 2 diabetes .
