On 16 December, Nuremberg joined Cities Changing Diabetes as city
number 45 in the network. The partners are kicking off by exploring
measures to reduce the number of residents that will become overweight
and develop diabetes. Nuremberg joins the Berlin district of
Marzahn-Hellersdorf (joined 2020) and Mainz (joined 2022) as the third
network city in Germany.
Before launch, analysis of the diabetes situation was carried out with the Institute for Health Promotion. Findings show that around 9% of people in Nuremberg live with diabetes, and prevalence varies from 5 to 12 % in some districts.
