"We’re doing all we can to create a world where diabetes can do no harm. That’s a promise". Diabetes UK chief executive Chris Askew
Diabetes is the fastest growing and potentially most devastating health crisis of our time, affecting 4.5 million men, women and children in the UK. By 2025, it is estimated that the number of people living with all types of diabetes will rise to 5.2 million.
It is notoriously difficult to manage, and can lead to many complications – from blindness and amputation, to dying early. But a world where diabetes can do no harm is within reach.
With our campaigning work, the research we fund, and the resources we produce we are already making real, life-changing and life-saving differences right now.
Thanks to successful campaigning, Flash Glucose Monitoring will be made available on the NHS from November 2017. This is going to revolutionise the way people monitor their blood sugar levels and manage their diabetes. And it wouldn’t have been possible without our supporters.
It is only with your support that we can create a world where diabetes can do no harm.
Please continue to help us to achieve this vision.
