  Background: Globally diabetes is increasing with concerns about the impact on outcomes, including premature death and the costs associated with managing the condition. Research indicates that adults with intellectual disabilities (ID) are 2-3 times more likely to develop diabetes; however there has been limited focus on diabetes service utilisation in this population. The aim of this study was to explore the perceptions and experiences of diabetes and ID practitioners.
