This Diabetes Week (13–19 June)

Your blood sugar won’t always be in range. Figuring out food labels and menus might have you tearing your hair out. And you might have treated that 3am hypo with a few too many jelly babies. (And biscuits. Oh, and that sandwich…) But you’re doing it, every single day. Living with diabetes, juggling the ups and downs. And that’s worth celebrating.

So, this Diabetes Week, let’s celebrate you, the millions of people going through the same things, and everyone who’s there to support you along the way.
