The Hungarian Diabetes Association was established in 1970. The main purpose of the association is to raise the standards of diabetes care in Hungary. To fulfil this mission the Hungarian Diabetes Association co-ordinates and supports the diabetes outpatient clinics, and offers regular refresher courses in order to increase the knowledge in the field of diabetology. Our association also assists in the research of various issues regarding diabetes and the related disorders in Hungary. The society is organized for health care professionals (doctors, nurses, dieticians etc.) and to date we have 2685 members.

The main purpose of the journal is to publish the results of the Hungarian researchers and clinicians and to give brief overviews from international journals in Hungarian in the field of diabetology. In supplements the journal regularly publishes the national guidelines for diabetes care.
