Warning over young diabetics' health
A "worryingly high" number of children with type 1 diabetes have warning signs of long-term health complications, including blindness, according to a report.
The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) looked at figures from young people's diabetes units across England and Wales in 2013-14.
Its analysis shows that 26,867 children and young people with diabetes were recorded last year, compared with 25,221 in 2012/13.
