If you managed to guess right – well done! – because there is no way of telling who has diabetes just by looking.

If you didn't get them right –we're not surprised!

People with diabetes don't look any different.Diabetes is just something that's special about them, like having brown eyes or being good at football. We all have things about us that make us a little bit different, and diabetes is just one of those things. It's part of what makes you “you”.
