Northern Ireland celebrates Diabetes Week

Diabetes week save the date

Join us from 10 to 16 June as we come together to raise awareness, share knowledge, and support those affected by diabetes. This Diabetes Week, we're shining a light on the health checks you need when you have diabetes. We know life with diabetes can feel like number, check and test overload. You might feel fine, or feel like you don’t have the time. Or maybe you’re not sure what checks you should be getting. But these regular diabetes health checks are vital to keep you healthy, so you can continue living life to the full.

We have an exciting lineup of events and activities designed to inform, inspire, and engage everyone, from healthcare professionals to those living with diabetes and their loved ones.

You can also spread the word on social media, check us out Facebook, X and Instagram @diabetesukni. Join us as we look to strengthen awareness and support for the almost 115,000 people over the age of 17 living with diabetes in Northern Ireland.
