A diabetes support group will be hosting a meet up this Saturday in Littlehampton to mark World Diabetes Day.
Formed in 2005, the group, dizzy, was launched to help those diagnosed with diabetes, by offering easy to understand information and ongoing support.
A spokesman for dizzy said: “Unless you have diabetes yourself or know someone living with it, you probably don’t realise what a serious medical condition it is, the constant daily battle it presents for some and the long term complications which can be linked to it.”
For those already living with it, dizzy offer a one-to-one support and information service, peer to peer groups, food education and fitness advice, or quite simply an ear to listen.
The group also has a children and parent group where fun events are organised throughout the year.
This Saturday, November 14, dizzy will be holding a meet up at 10-12, Dove Lodge Littlehampton, at 10am.
The date would have been Sir Frederick Banting’s birthday, one of the co-finders of insulin – the first dose was given c1921.
