Highest prevalence of diabetes in UK
‘Tell us how living with diabetes makes you feel’
OVER 191,000 people are living with diabetes in Wales, the highest prevalence in the UK. The condition doesn’t just affect people physically but also has a big emotional impact that is often overlooked.
Living with diabetes can be tough. It is a complex, lifelong condition that must be closely managed day-to-day and feeling stressed or overwhelmed is natural. A lack of support to help deal with the emotional and psychological impact of the condition can make it even harder to manage.
At Diabetes UK Cymru we want emotional, psychological and mental health support for people with diabetes to become a priority. We believe everyone should have the space and opportunity to talk about their emotional wellbeing, be empowered to seek support and know where to go to get it.
Your experiences will help us make the case, so please take part in our survey.
Tell us how living with diabetes makes you feel and whether the care you receive gives you enough support to manage your diabetes when your emotional wellbeing is low.
