Diabetes Petitions

Diabetes.co.uk receives visitors from all over the world, many of whom share common problems or issues that they wish to protest against.

Part of our mission is to help the diabetic community in any way we can. As an individual, protesting an issue can be difficult, which is why we have set up the ability for diabetics to start petitions using our site.

Perhaps with a collective voice, the diabetic community can have greater influence on common problems, not to mention public policy. Sign our petition below.

Improve access to blood glucose testing for
type 2 diabetes

Self testing of blood glucose levels is an essential tool in helping people with Type 2 diabetes to manage their condition, to prevent complications, to reduce dependency on medication and improve overall quality of life.

Access to blood glucose testing on prescription should be offered to EVERY person with type 2 diabetes as part of the structured education that the NICE guidelines recommend. This facility should be ongoing to enable people with type 2 diabetes to best manage their health on a permanent basis. It is recognised that ongoing testing on certain medication regimes may need to be provided on a reduced basis according to the requirements of the individual patient.
