DUK Health

When we are young, it’s easy to think that you’re invincible. However, no one is. As much as our Type 1 shouldn’t get in the way of our lives, or stop us doing things, the reality is that at some point it will affect our health.

 

This could simply be getting a cold or a bit

down about our diabetes, to something that

will have a bigger impact on you and your

family.

 

This part will give you some information on the

different impact that diabetes can have on

some areas of our health from being run down

to exercise and having children.

 

We aren’t always going to be perfect with our

diabetes, however through talking to our

friends, family, partners and diabetes

healthcare team and being honest about

what’s going on with us, we can get the help

and support we need to overcome anything!

 

We’ve even made a little video to go along with this section just to show you that you're not alone going through this and any worries or concerns that you are having most folk with Type 1 will have at some point.
