On 14 May, Diabetes UK launched a report on mental health and diabetes which shows that 7 out of 10 people have felt overwhelmed by the demands of living with diabetes and three quarters of people with diabetes can't get the emotional and mental health support they need. Diabetes UK are calling on the NHS to ensure that everyone with diabetes is asked about their psychological wellbeing as part of every diabetes appointment.
