Here's what happened in Diabetes Week 2014
This year the theme for Diabetes Week was i Can. We listened to all of your stories about living with diabetes. We know that diabetes can sometimes feel like an uphill battle – so this year we wanted to hear about all the things that you CAN do, and the challenges you’ve overcome along the way.
When things have got tough, what have been the things you can do to get through it? What will you never let diabetes stop you from doing? Or if you support someone with diabetes, how do you help them along the way?
