When Mike Deane, 75, was diagnosed with the condition 18 years ago, it was a wake-up call. He changed his lifestyle, taking up walking, giving up smoking and eating more healthily. When Diabetes UK and local health professionals called on people in the area to form a support group in , Mike jumped at the chance and became not only a founder member but also its chair. I have gained good insights into how to live with diabetes and also to help other people through sharing stories and education. Healthcare professionals often come to our meetings to talk about various aspects of diabetes, such as the latest research or diabetic eye screening. He no longer has to prick his fingers to test his blood sugar or take any medication for diabetes. Diabetes is a condition where there is too much glucose in the blood because the body cannot use it properly. If not managed well, both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes can lead to devastating complications, such as sight loss, lower limb amputation, kidney failure and stroke. While Type 1 diabetes cannot be prevented, people are more likely to get Type 2 diabetes if they are overweight. Type 2 diabetes is treated with a healthy diet and increased physical activity, and sometimes medication as well.

The Network consists of five diabetes support groups based in the centre of Bristol, the East, West and South of the city. The group aims to support those living with diabetes and their carers and to be a vehicle for communication between people with diabetes and clinicians and health professionals. The groups are run by a small number of volunteers and we would welcome any support, no matter how little. Please contact us if you can offer any ideas or time in order to develop the group. The group aims to: -Offer a place where people with diabetes and their families can meet to gain support and share experiences -Provide information and increase understanding about living with diabetes to enable those with diabetes to enjoy healthy lives -Work closely with local agencies who support those living with diabetes -Work to influence those who make decisions about diabetes care and funding to ensure effective care in the area -Raise funds in order to support the group and to contribute to research into diabetes.

Diabetes UK are also urging parents not to let coronavirus fears stop them from seeking medical help if they're worried their child is showing the signs and symptoms of type 1 diabetes. The insulin pump therapy service has been running for 10 years, is jointly run by a consultant endocrinologist and a diabetes specialist nurse and is one of the largest pump services in England. We have considerable experience and knowledge about insulin pump therapy and we use and are familiar with many of the pumps currently available and being used in the UK. Currently we do insulin pump initiations per year. These are undertaken in small groups or on a one to one basis. The team will also advise on management of pump therapy during any inpatient episodes. This can help to ensure 'patient safety' during their stay in hospital. We offer pre-pump assessments for people preparing to start on insulin pump therapy, as well as pump review and trouble shooting clinics for people already using pumps. CGM provides information about the direction, magnitude, duration, frequency, and causes of fluctuations in blood glucose levels and so gives a much greater insight into blood glucose levels throughout 24 hours. Continuous glucose readings that supply trend information can help identify and prevent unwanted periods of hypo or hyperglycaemia.
