Diabetes Type 2


In this section you can find out about the experience of living with diabetes type 2 by seeing and hearing people share their personal stories on film. Our researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 40 people in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as symptoms, diagnosis, controlling diabetes and impact on lifestyle. We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.
