Who are we

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, of finding cure and preventive treatment of the disease.

The Belgian Diabetes Registry is a collaboration of more than 200 diabetologists, paediatricians and researchers active in Belgian universities and most non-university diabetes convention centres. It collects data of diabetic patients under age 40 and their relatives in a systematic and strictly confidential way.
