The Collaborative European Effort to Develop Diabetes Diagnostics is a health research project funded by the European Commission to improve the diagnosis and treatment of diabetes.

Diabetes is a major health problem for Europe, accounting for around 10% of the money spent on health. Beyond the cost of treatment, the disease is also the most common cause of renal replacement, blindness in young people, and a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease.

Delayed or inadequate diagnosis followed by inappropriate treatment poses a major challenge. This could be reduced by a more individualised approach, where patients are more accurately diagnosed and receive the most appropriate treatment.

CEED3 brings together experts across Europe to develop tools for diagnosing subgroups of diabetic patients and to alter the treatment and management of diabetes.
