Diabetes affects about 4.5 million people in the UK and a further 11.9 million are at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. And at Diabetes UK, we’re taking it seriously.
Today, 65 people will die early and hundreds more will face devastating, life-changing complications that could have been avoided or delayed if those individuals had had the right knowledge and support.
To change this we need to know more about diabetes, and the impact it has on the lives of those affected by it. From healthcare services and medication, to how living with the condition can affect relationships, and life at work or school, we want you to tell us what it’s like to live with the condition now, and how you hope this will change in the future.
If you are living with diabetes, if you’re a parent of a child with diabetes, or if you’re a carer for someone with diabetes, please take part in our Future of Diabetes survey.
Together, we can fight the challenges that diabetes presents, we can fight for a cure and we can fight on behalf of those who can’t. We can make sure the Government and NHS are giving people the care they need, now and in the future.
Share your knowledge with us, and help fight for a better future for people with diabetes. Please complete our Future of Diabetes online survey by 31 August at www.diabetes.org.uk/future-diabetes.
