Diabetes study finds differing sugar levels

A new diabetes study at the University of Leicester has discovered that South Asian people have higher levels of blood sugar than white Europeans.

The study involved 4,688 white Europeans and 1,352 South Asians, including people of Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi and Sri Lankan origin.

Researchers found blood sugar levels in the South Asian group were higher before risk factors, such as obesity, blood pressure and smoking, were taken into account.
