If you have recently been diagnosed with diabetes, you will have many questions to be answered – what is diabetes, how will it affect my life, will I need to inject insulin every day?
The lifestyle changes you will need to make may seem overwhelming at first, but it is important to remember that you are not alone. There are currently over 2.5 million people with diabetes in the UK and there are more than half a million people with diabetes who have the condition and don’t know it.
Understanding and managing your diabetes will be essential in helping you avoid complications.
