We are looking for people affected by diabetes to help us spread the message about the importance of good diabetes care and support during Diabetes Week 2015, which will take place between 14 - 20 June. I hope your readers may be able to help us in our search - they may be living with the condition or know someone who is.

We are looking for men and women of all ages and walks of life who have Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes. We hope that by sharing their personal experiences and stories with the community, we can inspire others who are living with diabetes and might be struggling to manage their condition to make changes and improve their health. 

If not managed well, both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes can lead to devastating complications.  Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in people of working age in the UK and is a major cause of lower limb amputation, kidney failure and stroke. 

People with diabetes willing to share their stories are invited to contact Diabetes UK. Send a brief summary of your experience with diabetes via email to london@diabetes.org.uk.
