Type 2 diabetes is the fastest growing health problem of our time. We support the projects, people and ideas needed to transform care and reduce the risk of long-term complications.
We’ve already helped UK scientists make life-changing breakthroughs. Did you know that we supported the longest and largest study of Type 2 diabetes? It showed that the right treatment could dramatically reduce complications.
But we’re not stopping there. Right now we’re funding studies to understand the causes of Type 2, find new treatments and bring about lasting remission.
With your support we could be doing so much more. Please help us by donating today. Even the smallest gift has the potential to change millions of lives.
In 2011, Diabetes UK research found that a low-calorie diet could put Type 2 diabetes into remission.
If this can be used routinely in GP care, it would transform the way that Type 2 is managed by the NHS. We’re funding our largest ever clinical trial to find out.
"I believe that this research will lead to a quantum leap forward in our understanding of how best to manage Type 2 diabetes."
