Welcome to our Type 1 Diabetes Stories Page:
Here you’ll find a wide range of stories from across the DigiBete site which are direct from the type 1 diabetes community. These are great to watch and you can share them with family, friends and your community to help them understand a little more of what it’s like living with type 1.
These are personal stories so any advice given to do with self-management will work for the individual in the film. If you have any questions about managing type 1 diabetes and what will work for you then contact your local diabetes team for support.
