Just about everyone has heard about diabetes. And, with 3.5 million people diagnosed in the UK and a further 549,000 who have the condition but don't yet know it, most of us know a friend or family member living with diabetes.

This Diabetes Week, organisers Diabetes UK is calling on everyone to share straight-talking stories, facts and videos to let everyone know the truth about diabetes.
