CSG 6: microvascular and macrovascular complications

CSG 6 aims to improve the prevention and management of diabetes-related complications. This CSG will focus on the prevention and management of the microvascular and macrovascular complications of diabetes. 

It will recognise the need to understand the underlying pathogenic processes of vascular complications, in order to achieve this. 

It will cover – but not be limited to – nerve and lower-limb related issues, retinopathy, kidney complications and cardiovascular diseases. 

Chair: Professor John Petrie, University of Glasgow

Professor Petrie works on vascular disease in Type 1 and 2 diabetes, focusing on ways to reduce rates of complications. His work includes large observational studies, biomarker discovery and clinical trials.

Now recruiting Healthcare Professionals for CSGs (including GPs, diabetes specialist nurses, podiatrists, dieticians, retinal screeners)

The membership term will be for three years in the first instance, which can be extended by an additional three years with agreement from the Management Committee and Diabetes UK. The Healthcare Professionals will undertake the position on a voluntary basis. The CSG will be provided with financial support for two face-to-face meetings and at least one teleconference per year.
