The Diabetes UK Kingston group is one of over 350 voluntary groups situated throughout the UK. Currently there are over 8,000 people in the Royal Borough of Kingston diagnosed as having a diabetic condition and national indicators are that there must be almost a further 2,000 who are unaware and undiagnosed.
The Kingston branch of Diabetes UK was formed in October 2015 to directly assist those with the condition, family and friends who needed more information and people who had been identified as being a risk of becoming diabetic.
Our twin aim as a support group is to make life easier to manage for those with both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, and reaching many others who are currently unaware of the risks that can be moderated by some simple, painless changes in lifestyle.
The group is not only for those with a diabetic condition but also family, friends and carers, as well as others who may have worries or concerns about acquiring the condition. We are here for you. Membership is free and we offer monthly meetings on interesting and practical topics.
