Dire figures in the latest local cases of Diabetes.

The number of locals, including those in Ipswich and Toowoomba, being hospitalised with Diabetes is on the rise.

The latest figures, released as part of National Diabetes Week, found over 11,000 patients spent 49,000 days in hospital beds last year, due to complications from the condition.

Diabetes Queensland C.E.O., Sturt Eastwood says in most cases, these hospital visits could've been avoided.
