Diabetes Awareness Week

Diabetes Week is back!

It’s a time again to bring the supporters together and to raise awareness of the condition, and vital funds for which Diabetes UK help, support and work to achieve the best. While a lot of people have a good understanding of diabetes and how to manage it, many others aren’t getting the right help and support to look after their diabetes.

Diabetes UK’s theme this year is to Know Diabetes & Fight Diabetes.

Know Diabetes

They want to encourage the diabetes community to share their experiences and knowledge. So they can hear about your diabetes stories as this is shared knowledge and could help someone else with the condition. With the power to transform lives and the knowledge gained from the experience of people living with diabetes, knowledge gained from research discoveries, knowledge from the people working with diabetes every day.

Fight Diabetes

Just by fighting every day to help support those people with diabetes, together we all need to fight the challenges that diabetes presents. These challenges will be funded over research, perceptions around Type 1 and Type 2, better care and rights for people at work and children at school living with diabetes.

Together we can fight diabetes!
