Diabetes Week - Northern Ireland

Diabetes Week is Diabetes UK's annual UK-wide awareness and fundraising week.

Diabetes Week 2016

Sunday 12 June to Saturday 18 June 2016

This year we used Diabetes Week to set the record straight about diabetes.

We uncovered the truth about diabetes; what it’s like to live with it every day, and the things you wish everyone knew about living with the condition. Many people joined the conversation and shared the myths and misconceptions they had heard over the years. Hopefully after Diabetes Week we have been able to reach more people and help them understand the complexity of our condition.

Diabetes UK Northern Ireland would like to thank everyone who took part in the many activities throughout the week and for making it such a successful week.

Catch up on Diabetes Week 2015

Thank you to everyone who took part and made Diabetes Week 2015 (Sunday 14 to Saturday 20 June) such a success. 

This Diabetes Week we wanted to remind everyone that you’re not on your own when it comes to diabetes.

Throughout the week, we were shouting about all of the ways we give support, advice, and chances to learn more about diabetes to help you manage your condition well. We also asked for your hints, tips and stories of living life to the full using #DiabetesAndMe. And you responded in droves! We loved hearing from each and every one of you.
