Still rising to the challenge

Since our founding in 1934, we have been at the forefront of diabetes breakthroughs.

We have campaigned for change in diabetes care, supported people through our helpline and local support groups, championed the work of healthcare professionals, and funded life-changing research.

Now, as we learn more about Type 2 diabetes, we want to make remission from the condition a reality for as many people as possible.

The Diabetes UK-funded DiRECT study has added to the much-needed evidence that remission can be achieved, and can potentially be done through routine NHS care.

But diabetes remains one of the biggest health crises today. We continue to rise to this challenge as we know that, together, we can create a world where diabetes can do no harm.
