Libby can help
Remember Libby, the specialist nurse Nadeem saw at his clinic visit, and who keeps popping up all over the site? Well, she works for Diabetes UK too, and so do lots of other people who can help, so just email in and one of us will be able to help you.
We won't tell anyone else, so don't be shy or worried. We might put your question and answer here on the website – but we won't use your real name or anything to show who you are. We only put the questions and answers here to help others just like you, who are facing the same things but maybe aren't happy to email in.
The Diabetes UK Helpline is open 9am to 6pm, Monday to Friday, on 0345 123 2399 if you or your family need to talk to someone who can help with your diabetes problems.
Please remember to ask for permission from whoever pays the phone bills before you call. See the on the phone page for call cost details.
