Fun stuff

No-one is going to pretend that diabetes is exactly fun, but you make your own fun – and we are here to help you share it around.

This is where you can share your pics and stories of what you get up to – despite or because of your diabetes.

How do you and the people around you deal with your diabetes, day to day? Maybe you've done a sponsored run for Diabetes UK, or just had a really good day out with your mates. Have you travelled to interesting places or even had a pet with diabetes?

Send us your stories and snaps and we will publish the best ones.


Anyone can have diabetes and it doesn't have to stand in the way of your dreams and ambitions. These celebrities all have diabetes and might give you inspiration to live your dreams.
