In their 75th anniversary year Diabetes UK are using this week to drive home the message “Act early. Improve lives”. While there’s often a bit of tension between the Type 1 and Type 2 communities when it comes to press coverage, hopefully we can all support the concept of acting early. Whether that’s in terms of preventing complications for Type 1’s or early diagnosis for Type 2’s.
Fingers crossed for lots of high profile press coverage of diabetes over this week, and toes crossed that most of it is on message, based on fact rather than prejudice and clear in terms of difference between Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.
