Diabetes UK
Desang director Sue Marshall says, “One of the great benefits of being a member of Diabetes UK is the chance to read Balance, the bi-monthly lifestyle magazine for people with diabetes. It has all the latest news and research on diabetes, plus celebrity interviews, recipes and lots of other interesting articles. It manages to be both serious, sensible and entertaining and educational and I look forward to each issue. Balance is free of charge to members of Diabetes UK and is also available from newsagents”

Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF)
Desang works with the UK branch of the JDRF which is a charity focused on a cure for Type 1 diabetes. If you go to their website and look for Discovery magazine, you should be able to subscribe for free for a year.


The Diabetes Research and Wellness Foundation (DRWF)
The Diabetes Research and Wellness Foundation (DRWF) was established to assist in the relief of persons with diabetes and to raise awareness about diabetes and its associated complications.

DRWFs main objective is ’staying well until a cure is found’ and in furtherance of this aim, provides support to those with diabetes by way of a ’Diabetes Wellness Network. The Wellness Network was founded because people with diabetes have to make decisions about their general health as well as their diabetes. The Network aims to help people with diabetes deal with these problems, whilst bearing in mind their diabetic condition.

INPUT Diabetes
