About our Diabetes news

Latest news on diabetes, providing comprehensive coverage of research, treatments, management, and support for those living with type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes.

Diabetes is a chronic health condition that affects millions of people worldwide. According to the World Health Organization, approximately 422 million adults were living with diabetes in 2014, and this number is expected to rise to 578 million by 2030. In the UK alone, over 4.9 million people have diabetes, with around 90% of cases being type 2 diabetes.

Recent developments in diabetes research have led to new treatments and management strategies. For example, the NHS has recently approved the use of a new type of medication called GLP-1 receptor agonists, which can help people with type 2 diabetes better control their blood sugar levels and reduce their risk of complications. Additionally, ongoing studies are exploring the potential of stem cell therapy and other innovative approaches to treating and potentially curing diabetes.

Living with diabetes can be challenging, but there are numerous support networks and resources available. Diabetes UK, the leading charity for people with diabetes in the UK, provides information, advice, and support through their helpline, local groups, and online forums. They also organise events and campaigns to raise awareness and fund research into diabetes. Many people with diabetes also find support through sharing their experiences and connecting with others who understand the daily challenges of managing the condition.

Diabetes has a long history, with the first known mention of the condition appearing in an Egyptian manuscript from c. 1500 BCE. In the late 19th century, scientists began to understand the role of the pancreas and insulin in diabetes, leading to the development of insulin therapy in the 1920s. Since then, significant advancements have been made in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of diabetes, improving the lives of millions of people worldwide.

Staying informed about the latest developments in diabetes research, treatments, and management is crucial for those living with the condition, as well as their loved ones and healthcare providers. Our NewsNow feed on diabetes brings you the most up-to-date and relevant information from trusted sources, ensuring you have access to the knowledge and resources you need to manage diabetes effectively and live a healthy, fulfilling life.
