Diabetes and metabolism

Diabetes and Metabolism together with Diabetes Center Berne

“Diabetes never gives you a break. It is always present in our lives. Lives where the only constant thing is change.” (Anna, 30, Helsinki. Living with diabetes Type 1 for 28 years).

“Diabetes is one of the fastest growing health challenges of the 21st century (…). The increasing prevalence of diabetes worldwide is driven by a complex interplay of socioeconomic, demographic, environmental and genetic factors. The continued rise is largely due to an upsurge in type 2 diabetes and related risk factors, which include rising levels of obesity, unhealthy diets and widespread physical inactivity.” (International Diabetes Federation, 2019).

Do you think diabetes prevention and management should become easier and more sustainable for the healthcare ecosystem?

We do too and are looking for HealthTech- and Research Innovators, HCP- and Patient entrepreneurs who want to tackle these challenges together with committed partners to help shape the future of health.
