Sharing diabetes tales will help thousands

Diabetes affects millions of people across the UK. It can have devastating health consequences and impacts all areas of life.

In Northern Ireland, over 100,000 people have diabetes and an estimated 12,000 people are living with undiagnosed Type 2 diabetes.

Having the right knowledge and support at the right time helps people to manage their diabetes and can help to delay, or avoid, life-changing complications.

To provide the right information and support that is relevant to the diabetes community, we need to know more about the impact it has on the lives of those affected by it.

At Diabetes UK Northern Ireland, we want your voice to be heard, we want you to add to the many voices already talking to us and tell us what it's like for you to live with the condition now and how you hope this will change in the future.

Share your knowledge, insights and ideas with us and help fight for a better future for people with diabetes.

Please complete our Future of Diabetes online survey by August 31 at future-diabetes.
