Children with Type 1 diabetes are being badly let down by the government, according to a leading charity which says spending on research has dropped dramatically over the past five years.
Diabetes charity JDRF say they've discovered that despite a pledge to ring-fence spending on medical research, investment in looking for a cure for Type 1 diabetes has fallen by £3m since 2009.
We find out from Millie Hainge and her mum what living with the condition is like and we're also joined by Dom Littlewood who is also a Type 1 sufferer.
Scientists have developed a new blood test which could detect if a healthy person will develop Alzheimer's disease over the next three years.
Changes in the blood may signify the early stages of the disease, researchers said in Nature Medicine.
Experts are highlighting the shocking and unnecessary levels of salt hidden inside our food and urging us to reduce our risk of heart attacks and strokes by reading labels and choosing less salty options
The recommended daily intake of saltfor an adult is no more than 6 grams a day but the current average salt intakeis 8.1g a day - and many people are eating more than this!
We set up a stall at Ashton Market inTameside, Greater Manchester where any people were unable to pour therecommended maximum amount of salt - and we shocked shoppers, revealing theamount of salt in some of their favourite foods!
Though breastfeeding has long been declared the gold standard, a new study has suggested that its benefits might actually be overrated. The research, out of America, found that when siblings raised in the same family were fed differently - one breastfed, the other not - the long-term health results were virtually the same.
We put these finding to Ursula Hirschkorn, who claims that bottle feeding made her a better mum to her sons, and Sharon Spink, a trainee breastfeeding counsellor who is still breastfeeding her four year old child.
Eating disorders now now affect more younger people than ever before and last year there was an 8 per cent increase in the number of hospital admissions.
Today, charities are calling for better education about these debilitation conditions.
We speak to former Emmerdale actress Gemma Oaten about suffering with anorexia as a teenager.

We're used to having wi-fi in our homes and at work, but now wireless technology has been harnessed to provide life-saving treatment for people with potentially fatal heart problems.
The new heart monitor is the size of a fingernail, and sends data via a modem to the patient's cardiologist who can check that they are fit and healthy.
Only two patients have had this treatment so far, but now we meet two brothers with a serious heart condition who will be the first UK children to undergo the procedure.

A new drug to treat aggressive breast cancer will be available to women across the UK from today.
Up until now the drug, previously known as TDM1 has only been available to those on clinical trials. The drug is being hailed as a first of its kind in breast cancer as it allows chemotherapy to be delivered directly to cancer cells.
The drug works a bit like a sniffer dog , it sniffs out cancer cell and releases chemotherapy once it's inside the cell. The drugs destroy it from the inside.
It's been developed to help prolong the lives of women with advanced or aggressive breast cancer who are not expected to survive. Bernie Nolan said on Daybreak she was looking forward to launch of this drug but it came out too late for her. It costs £44,000 per course of treatment.
Mani from Reading developed breast cancer 11 years ago but two years ago it spread to advanced breast cancer and so she started taking the drug as part of a clinical trial and has been taking it for two years.
We hear more about Mani's story.
