BBC News is reporting (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/8587032.stm) on a new research by the New England Journal of Medicine that suggests that the diabetes is far more prevalent in China that thought. The condition is still often undiagnosed among the Chinese population.

The new study says the diabetes could be affecting 10% of the Chinese. This percentage is the same as in the USA, but twice higher than in Japan (5%) or in the United Kingdom (4%). Even Indians, which another research (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/7760413.stm) showed have a genetic propensity for diabetes, have a lower susceptibility (7%).
