Diabetes group - a world where diabetes can do no harm

Wymondham Diabetes UK Group revives and relaunches on Tuesday, 14 June 2022. The group, like many others, has been impacted by the pandemic over the last two years.

The informal and friendly support group is here to help and is for all people living with diabetes. Whether you are newly diagnosed or have been living with the condition for a number of years, there will be something for you. The group exchanges ideas and provides peer support.

The meetings, which include speakers, will be held at Fairland Church, Fairland Hill, Wymondham, NR18 0AW from 2pm to 4pm on the second Tuesday of alternate months.

Everyone is welcome to join, for more details on the group or information about the meetings email wymdiabetes@gmail.com or phone 01953 606054.

There are an estimated 4.9 million people living in the UK with diabetes - a condition where there is too much glucose in the blood because the body cannot use it properly. If not managed carefully, both type 1 and type 2 diabetes can lead to devastating complications, including sight loss, amputation, kidney failure and stroke. There is currently no known cure for any type of diabetes.

Diabetes UK’s aim is creating a world where diabetes can do no harm.

Diabetes is the most devastating and fastest growing health crisis of our time, affecting more people than any other serious health condition in the UK - more than dementia and cancer combined. There is currently no known cure for any type of diabetes.

With the right treatment, knowledge and support people living with diabetes can lead a long, full, and healthy life. For more information about diabetes and the charity’s work, visit www.diabetes.org.uk
