The NHS recommends that people with diabetes should have 8 healthcare checks each year.
Part of the study involves helping you understand why you should go for these yearly checks with your GP/Nurse.
This is so you can have measured what are thought as the 8 most important markers that show how you are living with your diabetes. These are known as the 8 healthcare checks.
We want to go further than you just going for your yearly check. We want to help you understand why each of the 8 checks are important and how each one can affect your diabetes.
