Diabetes Awareness Week

12th - 18th June 2016

By 2035 it is estimated that the number of people living with diabetes will rise to 535 million. Over the last two years it has led to the deaths of between 1.5 and 5.1 million people world-wide. Diabetes UK aims to care for, connect with and campaign on behalf of all people affected by and at risk of diabetes, reaching people with diabetes in local communities across the UK.  This year Diabetes Awareness Week’s theme is Setting the Record Straight and it is seeking stories from individuals living with diabetes. In doing so its goal is to raise awareness of the disease among the population of the UK in order to prevent its increase.
