Your annual review
Your annual review is very important and will be carried out by your diabetes care team. You should think of it as a health MOT that will check all your risk factors and screen you for any possible complications.
The most important thing to remember is that complications can be prevented, and there are a lot of things you can do to stay healthy. Your annual review is a key part of taking care of yourself and ensuring long-term health.
In addition, there are a number of conditions that are not caused by diabetes as such, but that tends to be more common in people who have diabetes. There is a useful section on the Diabetes UK website that describes these different conditions and how they can be treated.
