CSG 1: Causes of diabetes

CSG 1 aims to improve our understanding around the causes of all forms of diabetes. This CSG will include the causes of all forms of diabetes.

It will cover the genetic and environmental risk factors for diabetes, insulin resistance, epigenetics, and matters relating to correct diagnosis.

It will also cover the epidemiology of diabetes, in order to uncover patterns of diabetes within the population.

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.
