This week is Diabetes Awareness Week in the UK, which aims to not only raise awareness of the condition, which is currently diagnosed in around 3.9 million people – that’s one in 15 – in the UK alone, but also how changes in diet and lifestyle can help to manage diabetes and reduce the risk of contracting it.  

Nationally someone gets diagnosed with diabetes every two minutes. Diabetes has a huge impact on long-term health, contributing to 169 amputations, 680 strokes, and 530 heart attacks every single week. 

Everyone’s experience of diabetes is different, but we’re united by a common goal – building a better future. Help us paint #TheBigPicture this Diabetes Week. The triumphs, the setbacks, the daily routines and unexpected turns.
