MAKING A

DIFFERENCE

A brief overview of some of the fundraising activities that have been

undertaken in 2017 to raise funds and awareness about diabetes and

for diabetes charities.

F

aye Riley, who is part

of the research team at

Diabetes UK looks back

at 2017 and says, "Great

progress is being made

with the Type 1 diabetes research we're

funding all across the UK. Towards the

end of this year we brought you some

news about a study that is the first to

use a new genetic technique to find

Type 1 diabetes in adults. Using key

Type 1 diabetes genes to calculate each

person's risk of having the condition,

scientists found that a diagnosis of Type

1 is almost equally common in those

over the age of 30 as in younger people.

This is really important information

that could help adults get the correct

diagnoses of diabetes, as it's too often

assumed that older people are more

likely to only have Type 2. Then we've

got a bunch of other projects you can

explore. Professor Noel Morgan, in

Exeter, is studying the immune attack

in Type 1 diabetes. Professor James

Shaw, in Newcastle, is working on

a new approach to improve islet cell

transplants to treat Type 1 diabetes.

Professor Helen Colhoun, in Edinburgh,

is looking for specific genes involved in

Type 1 diabetes and its complications,

to help develop new therapies. And

that's only scratching the surface."

Karen Addington, Chief Executive of

JDRF in the UK, has said: "Thank you to
