Health Desk—Nov 14, 2017: Many people living with diabetes are struggling with related emotional problems - an issue that needs support and recognition, according to a charity.

Diabetes UK surveyed 8,500 people about diabetes and how it affected their daily life.

Three in five said their condition made them feel down.

Of those in employment, 16% felt discriminated against at work - and 7% had not even told their employer about their diabetes.

Clare (not her real name), 26, says she had to quit her job as a management consultant as a direct result of her diabetes.
