One night this week I took part in the Diabetes UK twitter chat. The topic for discussion was the Make The Grade campaign which looks at how schools support children with type 1 diabetes.
As a result I wanted to celebrate the wonderful people we have around us. Who have made type 1 diabetes an every day occurrence? Like breathing. Or walking.
Jack was in year 5 when he was diagnosed when he was diagnosed with t1
If you have come to his post and are newly diagnosed, then I urge you get to know your diabetes team. Use their expertise and ask question, loads. These people have the power to make life so much easier and diabetes easier to control.
