Do you have diabetes? Are you interested in research?
The number of people diagnosed with diabetes is continually rising. In Greater Manchester there are more than 150 000 people diagnosed with diabetes. If not well controlled, diabetes can cause serious health complications such as heart and kidney disease, stroke and amputation.
It is only possible to better understand diabetes and bring about improvements in its prevention, treatment and care through research. It might sound obvious, but diabetes research can only take place with the help of people who have the condition.
The ‘Help DiaBEATes’ campaign running across Greater Manchester encourages those living with diabetes in the region to get involved with a wide range of NHS research opportunities in their local area.
For more information about the campaign please visit the Help DiaBEATes website, or if you are over 18, have diabetes and want to join the campaign, sign up online by filing out the online form or text research and your name to 81400 (standard text rate).
