Diabetes Week 2018 - Talk about diabetes

Diabetes Week 2018 started on 11th June, and this year, Diabetes UK encouraged people to discuss the condition via their website, or using #TalkAboutDiabetes.

Diabetic Retinopathy is a possible complication of diabetes and can lead to sight loss. In Wales, the Diabetic Retinopathy Screening Service (DESW) is designed to detect sight threatening diabetic retinopathy at an early stage before visual loss occurs. All persons who have a confirmed diagnosis of diabetes, and registered with a GP in Wales should be referred to the service. You can find out more about DESW here.
