Jonny's diabetes story

In better control with his pump since 2004

I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 15. In reaction to the diagnosis, I wanted to understand what diabetes was. I wanted to know what it would take for me to go back to the life I had before. It is important to have a proactive mind-set, because the amount of effort you put in to learning about the condition directly affects how good your control and lifestyle will be. There are so many things you can learn about at diagnosis, including an insulin pump, that can help you to live well and take control.
