Type 1 and type 2 diabetes are very different conditions, and should be treated as such. Our hub contains a selection of our extensive information on diabetes, including symptoms, treatment and complications arising from diabetes as well as lifestyle and diet advice.

. Be inspired by real-life stories and healthy recipes, stay informed with the British Heart Foundation.

"The key to good diabetes management – whatever the type – is you. Of course your healthcare team are there for support, but they spend a few hours a year with you at most. The potential benefits are huge. So being able to access the tools you need to take control of your own condition is key. To do that, you need information – the most accurate, up-to-date information – at your fingertips. And that’s exactly what we aim to provide with our hub."
