About us

We believe that everyone has a right to a long and healthy life. A life that shouldn’t revolve around diet and exercise, where everyday life is not centred on syringes of insulin and technical devices. A life not facing prejudice and inequality.

Today there is no cure for diabetes. When the illness gets its grip, it is for the rest of one’s life. Our vision is to extinct the illness for good. However, here and now we are doing all we can to make life as fair and easy as possible.

To support us in this challenge you can become a donor. Your donation is helping research of all types of diabetes, in all its aspects and complexities and to increase knowledge about diabetes.  Give a donation

You can also get support by becoming a member. There are different types of membership, and as a main member you get access to all our member benefits, such as the possibility to sign up for an insurance, the magazine Allt om Diabetes six times per year and a chance to engage and contribute locally. Most importantly as a member you are supporting our work to influence politicians and legislators towards equal health care and against other inequalities in our society that affects people with diabetes. Become a member and get support.
