This article explores the prevalence of type 2 diabetes in the UK among ethnic groups. Data from the 2011-2012 National Diabetes Audit and the more recent Royal College of General Practitioners' Research and Surveillance Centre database, which includes data from 2014, was used. The authors suggest theories for the differences observed between ethnic groups and discuss solutions to improve the identification of those at risk.
