Help for youngsters with diabetes

Around 21,000 people live with diabetes across Tayside, and the number increases every year.

Around 1,900 of these have Type 1 diabetes and the rest have Type 2 diabetes - both types of diabetes are lifelong conditions.

This year’s focus of Diabetes Week is research - there have been breakthroughs in diabetes research for more than 75 years, and work continues towards achieving a future without diabetes.

On Saturday (June 15) at 10am, the Tayside Paediatric Diabetes Team will be holding an information morning in Lecture Theatre 2 at Ninewells, where Professor Steve Greene will give an update on developments in treatment and the diabetes service. All families of children with diabetes who attend the Tayside service are welcome.

Contact Caroline McAuley on 01382 740409 if you would like to attend.
