Amy, from County Down, Northern Ireland, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when she was 11. She thought she might have the condition after a boy in her class at school gave a talk about his Type 1 diagnosis.

Amy’s top tip for anybody who is diagnosed with diabetes is to not feel that you have to go it alone.
“It’s perfectly natural to feel angry, upset and overwhelmed at times; the trick is to not bottle your feelings up and remember that everything is still achievable.
“Diabetes should never hold you back in life and, if anything, it can actually make you a better and stronger person in the long run.”
