ecent research from

Diabetes UK has

found that three in

five people living with

diabetes experience

emotional or mental health problems

as a result of the condition. In one of

the largest surveys ever carried out by

Diabetes UK, 8,500 people of different

ages, ethnicities and backgrounds from

across the UK shared their experiences

of living with diabetes today, and what

their hopes and fears were for the future.

How diabetes affects emotional

wellbeing stood out as a major factor

for respondents, with three in five (64%)

saying that they often or sometimes feel

down because of their diabetes. One in

three (33%) said that diabetes got in the

way of them or a family member doing

things they wanted to do. Only three in

ten (30%) said they definitely felt in control

of their diabetes.

The research also found that 19%of

respondents had used support or

counselling from a trained professional

to help them manage their diabetes, and

nearly a third (32%) had at some point

relied on self-help materials including

books, videos and resources found

online.

The results of this research are

included in Diabetes UK's Future of

Diabetes report, which launched in

November to mark World Diabetes Day.

The charity is urging the Government to

radically improve health outcomes for

people with diabetes by committing to

sustain transformation funding at current
