hello, greetings, something like that not great with introductions to be honest . I'll carry on anyway I'm 14 been a slave to this lifestyle for 6 years now, not great with talking as you probably know which kind of conflicts the main reason I'm here. i live in England i am currently on 4 shots a day ,don't like the idea of pumps. Been looking for a diabetic community like this for ages, struggled until i found the legend of mike Lawson's YouTube channel 2 weeks back. so yeah.

Hi everyone, I'm 16 and was diagnosed 3 years ago....I've never spoke to anyone else my age who have this same stupid disease as me and basically I just want someone to talk to who knows what it's like. I'm struggling through a rough patch atm so anyone who wants to talk I happily will

Hello my name is Tiegan, I am 16 years old and have type one diabetes, I have struggled a lot with my diabetes and wanted to know if I was the only one like this or are all us diabetic teenagers the same?

Lauren, when doing a test with a high or lowBG you won't b able to focus very well,I've got bad marks in a lot of tests because of my bloods. But when it comes to major tests or important exams you will either get extra time or will be able to be in a separate room so that if u have a hypo once its treated you can continue with your exam. But try getting a medic alert band or bracelet or a necklace to inform your teachers your diabetic.:)

Dani, I have had diabetes for 6 years once you learn all you need to and can do your shots (or insert a pump infusion set ) you will be able to fly through it !once u learn how to count carbs you'll be able to look at a plate and go 40carbs 10 carbs etc etc; don't worry once your out of "the honeymoon period" you'll be fine!!!:)
