A Committee at the National Assembly for Wales is calling for urgent action to address a diabetes 'epidemic' in Wales.
The Health and Social Care Committee has been told that five per cent of the Welsh population - that's more than 160,000 people - have now been diagnosed with diabetes.
An estimated 300,000 people have what is known as pre-diabetes, which means they have higher than normal blood glucose levels.
The Committee found that targets for tackling the problem set out 10 years ago in the Welsh Government's Diabetes National Service Framework are likely to be missed.
