Universal Credit crackdown: 500k Brits forced to widen job search or risk cut to benefitsHalf a million Brits on Universal Credit will be forced to widen their job search or risk a cut to their benefits under new Government plans The cruelty is off the scale.

(Image: GETTY) Although diet can help, the NHS says most people need medicine to control their type 2 diabetes. It says: “Medicine helps keep your blood sugar level as normal as possible to prevent health problems. You may have to take it for the rest of your life. Diabetes usually gets worse over time, so your medicine or dose may need to change.” The National Institutes of Health (NIH) says: “You can develop type 2 diabetes at any age, even during childhood. However, type 2 diabetes occurs most often in middle-aged and older people. “You are more likely to develop type 2 diabetes if you are age 45 or older, have a family history of diabetes, or are overweight or obese.” Related articles
