OVER 4,500 PEOPLE IN JERSEY HAVE DIABETES

If left untreated, diabetes can lead to blindness, amputation, kidney failure and even death.
Diabetes occurs when the pancreas slows down or stops the production of insulin.

- Diabetes nurses
- Type 2 diabetes tests
- Type 1 diabetes patch monitors
- Diabetes monitoring kits
- Psychologist support
- Podiatry care
EVERY DAY IN JERSEY 1 MORE PERSON CONTRACTS DIABETES
DIABETES JERSEY CREATES PUBLIC AWARENESS OF THE VALUE OF BEING TESTED FOR DIABETES.
Type 1 diabetes is a condition in which the pancreas is completely unable to produce insulin. It tends to occur in children of any age and cannot be prevented. There is no cure and requires a lifetime of insulin monitoring to stay healthy.
Type 2 TESTING FOR DIABETES IS SIMPLE, QUICK AND EFFECTIVE.
Type 2 diabetes is when the pancreas cannot produce sufficient insulin or the body that cannot use it effectively. It tends to occur in adulthood, but has become more common in teenagers and children with obesity. Type 2 can be reversed if detected early enough.
