Abstract

Diabetes is increasing worldwide; growth is associated with lifestyle choices and an ageing population. Yet like many chronic secondary conditions, type 2 diabetes can be prevented. Evidence indicates that people with intellectual disabilities are at a higher risk of developing both type 1 diabetes, as result of genetics, and type 2 diabetes, as a consequence of obesity, leading more sedentary lifestyles, and eating poorer diets. Identifying people with intellectual disabilities who are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes has been shown to be difficult and it has also been found that the management of the condition among this population is poor. This chapter focuses on the prevention of type 2 diabetes and, for those people with the disorder, how to self-manage the condition.
