Diabetes Week is an annual highlight in the Diabetes UK calendar. It’s a time when we bring our supporters together to raise awareness of the condition, and vital funds for our work.
Diabetes Week 2016
Sunday 12 June to Saturday 18 June 2016
Just about everyone has heard about diabetes. And, with 3.5 million people diagnosed in the UK and a further 549,000 who have the condition but don't yet know it, most of us know a friend or family member living with diabetes. And yet it’s still hugely misunderstood, and there are so many myths and misconceptions out there that this year, the we decided the theme should be Setting the record straight.
This Diabetes Week we called on everyone we know to share straight talking stories, facts and videos to let everyone know the truth about diabetes.
We focused on what it’s actually like to live with it every day and talked about the things people with diabetes wish everyone knew about living with the condition.
