This issue of, which is free of charge, contains news and articles about diabetes management and care, local community events, campaigning and volunteering issues as well as details of the latest exciting Diabetes UK projects.
The newsletter is specifically tailored for the BME community. Readers are also able to have their general health questions answered by a Diabetes UK care advisor in the ‘Dear Roopinder’ page.
Jenne Dixit, Equality and Diversity Advisor at Diabetes UK said, "It is important that we reach people from BME communities as they are up to six times more likely to develop Type 2 diabetes than the white population. In addition, they risk developing the condition earlier in life.
She added: "The first issue of the newsletter was a huge success and we hope that this latest publication will help us meet particular information needs of these communities.”
People from BME groups at high risk of developing Type 2 diabetes include those over 25 who are overweight, or have a family history of diabetes.
