Belgian Diabetes Registry VZW/ASBL

Since its foundation in 1989, the Belgian Diabetes Registry or BDR has evolved to a national network of physicians, researchers and their teams, all collaborating in scientific research on diabetes. The primary task of the BDR is to collect data from patients with diabetes and their relatives with the ultimate goal of improving treatment, and finding a cure and an effective prevention of the disease.

The BDR has the following specific goals:

  • to determine the occurrence of diabetes in Belgium
  • to look for causes and markers of diabetes
  • to prepare and support experimental therapies in diabetic patients and their relatives
  • to provide information on new developments to the scientific and to the larger community

Clinical Trial Work Group (CTWG)

The BDR has established a working group as a central contact point for clinical trials planned and organised in Belgium in diabetic patients under age 40.
