Diabetes UK - New page added to menu
Diabetes - it could happen to anyone. The more people know about diabetes the better. We have therefore added a new page to our menu.
The little girl pictured here has had diabetes from the age of five - she will have to have daily injections for the rest of her life in order to stay alive.
No one knows the cause of type 1 diabetes - that's the type where the person needs daily insulin injections.
Type 2 is often age related and can be usually controlled by diet or tablets - sometime a combination of both. Read more about it on our new page at the bottom of our menu.
