Type 2 diabetes rising in B.C. young people, study says (Providence Health Care)
A new study says Type 2 diabetes has dramatically increased in young people in B.C.
The research, from Providence Health Care, found that far more people under 30 years old have Type 2 than Type 1, especially those who are South Asian and Chinese.
The study authors point to high-calorie diets and too much sitting.
