For Diabetes Week 2017 we want to redefine diabetes.

The mainstream media (we’re looking at you, Daily Express) often purports diabetes in a conflicting, negative way, confusing type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes and insinuating people with type 2 diabetes are to blame for having the condition.

Throughout this Diabetes Week, which runs from Sunday 11 June to Saturday 17 June, we’ll be busy across our media channels helping to redefine diabetes and show the world what diabetes really looks like. Get involved and send us your #RedefiningDiabetes or #FacesOfDiabetes selfie and story on Facebook.

But right now, check out our exclusive high-resolution wallpapers, to show your support of those who overcome diabetes every single day.
