Diabetes is a hidden condition. Millions of us live with it, but millions more misunderstand it. And we want to change that. Our newest campaign is all about showing what diabetes is really like, through the stories of the people who live with it day in, day out.
You’ll meet Liz, Jon, Kaajal, Gina, Libby and her parents, as they talk about what life with diabetes is like for them. We know it’s different for everyone, but we hope you’ll see some of your own experiences in theirs and know you’re not going through it alone.
And we hope it also helps you show others how it feels. Learning to listen to your body and dealing with other people’s opinions. Constantly managing numbers and planning ahead. Being the most organised person you know.
We’re here for you. For advice, support and community come to https://www.diabetes.org.uk or call our helpline on 0345 123 2399.
