About Diabetes UK

Diabetes UK is the UK’s leading diabetes charity, committed to creating a world where diabetes can do no harm. Diabetes is the most devastating and fastest growing health crisis of our time, and Diabetes UK is dedicated to supporting everyone affected by diabetes, preventing type 2 diabetes, and funding research that will one day lead to a cure.

How Diabetes UK can help

Know the signs and symptoms: Find out more about the signs and symptoms of diabetes. The 4Ts of type 1 diabetes – feeling tired, thirsty, needing the toilet more often, and unexplained weight loss (thinner) – can come on very quickly, so it’s important to know what to look out for.

Helpline: The Diabetes UK Helpline is a dedicated diabetes helpline for all people with diabetes, their family or friends, and people who are worried they might be at risk. If you have questions about diabetes, or just want to talk, get in touch with Diabetes UK’s Helpline on 0345123 2399 or email helpline@diabetes.org.uk.

If you're in Scotland, call 0141 212 8710 or email helpline.scotland@diabetes.org.uk.

Diabetes UK Support Forum: Diabetes UK’s Support Forum is an online community where you can exchange knowledge and experiences with other people with diabetes, family and carers.

Local support groups: Diabetes UK has active support groups working locally all over the United Kingdom. Groups typically meet once a month, but they often also take part in many other activities such as fundraising, campaigning and raising awareness. Find your local support group.

Learning Zone: Join over 90,000 people on Diabetes UK’s Learning Zone for advice on what to eat and tips for managing diabetes day-to-day – all completely free and tailored to you.

Type 1 events: If you’re a parent of carer of a child with type 1 diabetes, you can join Type 1 Event Virtual Q&A Panel Sessions to hear from people living with type 1. Find out more about Diabetes UK’s panel sessions and other type 1 events.

Get involved: Our work is made possible by the generosity of our supporters. There are lots of ways to get involved with Diabetes UK, such as fundraising, donating, volunteering and campaigning. Find out how you can get involved.
