In response to recent figures showing a gap in the care people with type 1 diabetes are receiving, Diabetes UK has sent out a call encouraging people with type 1 to make sure they are receiving appropriate care and the best treatments available to protect themselves from developing the complications of the condition in the future.

As part of the 15 checks, the charity highlighted the importance for people with type 1 to get their vision checked annually using retinal screening, to ensure they don’t develop diabetic retinopathy. They also encouraged people to have their kidney functions monitored, to request specific care plans that are tailored to individuals needs, to get their legs and feet checked and also to get emotional and psychological support.

We fully support Diabetes UK’s campaign to ensure people with the condition have access to the care services they require, whilst we fund research to develop better treatments, prevent complications and ultimately find the cure. The work they do in encouraging people with type 1 diabetes to keep healthy is vital.

Visit our website, to learn more about the research we are doing to understand and prevent the complications of type 1 diabetes.
