Youth diabetes increasing in Tonga, says King


Diabetes cannot be cured, Tonga’s King Tupou VI said today and expressed concern that an increasing number of youth are being diagnosed with the disease in Tonga.

“Young people are being removed from school because of diabetes and more than half of the case studies have lost their mothers because of diabetes,” he said in launching the 2012-13 Tonga Youth Diabetes Study Report.
