Hi, my name is Jodie and im 11 years old. I was diagnosed with Diabetes when i was 5 years old. I'm writing to tell all you other people with Diabetes that just because your Diabetic doesn't mean that it takes over your life. Your just like any other person. It just means that insulin doesnt pump through your body like others, and thats all the difference. You can still do sports, have friend, have a lgood time. I play Tennis every Saterday, and I enjoy a good run. All you need to remember in sports is to take something sugary and not to do too much exercise before bed, or your blood glucose will shoot right down! So, just remember your like an y other person!
