CSG 5 aims to improve our understanding around the long-term self-management of diabetes. This CSG will focus on a range of topics involved in self-management, including diet, exercise, glycaemic control including, hypoglycaemia and hyperglycaemia, structured education and peer support, along with other more informal learning and support options.
It will also cover mental health, psychological and emotional support, and behavioural changes related to the adherence to medication.
Chair: Dr Mark Evans, University of Cambridge
Dr Mark Evans is interested in hypoglycaemia and how the brain detects changes in glucose levels. He works on the development of new ways to help people avoid hypoglycaemia, using, for example, structured education or technology.
CSGs are bringing together researchers, healthcare professionals and people with diabetes to create a roadmap for new research.
