About DNSG

The Study Group on Diabetes and Nutrition of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) was formed in 1982, and has worked to realise better scientific interchange on clinical and metabolic effects of nutrition in relation to diabetes, and the implementation of appropriate dietary therapy in diabetic individuals.

The study group (DNSG) holds an annual international scientific congress, in which members and prospective members of the group assemble to stimulate scientific discussion with respect to the board’s aims. These meetings also function to enable the Bureau and the General Assembly to conduct the annual general meeting of the Bureau, and to elect the Bureau and nominate new members.

A series of satellite meetings have also been held from time to time. Please follow this link to the conferences page of the site for more detailed information about our meetings history, and for news about our upcoming conference and annual meeting.

The group has established links with international academies and related study groups, notably the EASD (European Association for the Study of Diabetes). To find out more about the study of diabetes visit  the EASD.

The committee of DNSG consists of 9 members elected by the members present at the business meeting of the group. Appointed committee members serve for 3 years and may remain in the committee at the end of their term if they have been selected as office-bearer.

Membership is drawn from the scientific community in Europe and beyond. The DNSG also awards annual prizes to young researchers, and specific travel grants to researchers to facilitate travel and participation in the annual meeting.
