Campaigns - Wales | Diabetes Uk

Our campaigns depend on your support. When we work alongside people with diabetes in Wales, we can change things for the better. Here's some information of some of our recent campaigns as well as ways you can get involved. Join our network of campaigners: Diabetes Voices Our Diabetes Voices make a difference by campaigning for us and influencing decision makers and service providers in Wales, to make sure every person with diabetes gets the best treatment and services. We know some children with Type 1 diabetes get excellent support in school, but this is not the case for everyone. We are working hard to make sure that all children with diabetes get the support they need to reach their full potential with our Make the Grade campaign . Our Know Type 1 campaign is raising awareness of the common symptoms of Type 1 diabetes, known as the 4Ts (Toilet, Thirsty, Tired, Thinner), to make sure children in Wales are diagnosed sooner and more safely. Make sure you know how to care for your feet to help avoid complications like ulcers and amputations. Continue reading >>

    I was told I was borderline a few years ago...I am on no medicine, I know if I don't be good with food, I can have high readings on my meter..anyway, I had A1C and the nurse said it was normal..it was 6.0..what does that mean? Normal for anyone or normal for someone who has problems.

    I would not take this as a green light to go off your diet and exercise programs, but rather as an indication that you are doing everything right to delay or prevent the onset of Type 2 diabetes.

    From what I understand the A1c test is the most accurate test...so do I need to still daily monitor? And why do my readings come out as 115 average in morning...169 average 2 hours after eating and sometimes takes a few hours to get back below 120..I'm confused what to follow...just A1c or still readings at home and why am I having such bad readings when my A1c comes out as non-diabetic..just trying to figure this all out.
