Diabetes Week

Diabetes UK lockup

It's Diabetes Week. Let's talk about diabetes.

Diabetes Week 2018 took place from 11-17 June, and this year we wanted to #TalkAboutDiabetes. We know that talking about diabetes isn’t always easy, but a good conversation can be really useful, whether that’s with your healthcare team, friends and family, colleagues or even people you’ve just met.

All week we shared our top tips for having better conversations and asked people with diabetes to share theirs on social media and online. You can read all the tips on this page, and you can still share your top tips and experiences of talking about diabetes in the box below (photo or video optional).
