Type 2 diabetes used to be very rare in people less than thirty years of age. In England around 6,000 young adults now have the condition and many more may have it but don’t know it. Sometimes blood sugar levels are too high and are difficult to control in this group. We want to see if we can help by developing new ways of caring for young people with type 2 diabetes. It is important that this plan works because the consequences of not managing diabetes well are severely disabling. For it to work, we want to understand the needs of this often very busy group of people. To do this we need to ask young people aged thirty or less with type 2 diabetes what they think of our ideas.
