Your diabetes stories

When you have diabetes, it can feel like no-one really understands. But you're not alone.

This section is full of young people who, just like you, have their own unique diabetes story.

Diabetes – day to day

It might be how they dealt with diagnosis and daily life with the condition. Some have tips on how to deal with the people around you who maybe don't understand what you're going through.

Don't let diabetes get in the way

Some have inspirational stories of how diabetes hasn't stopped them becoming exactly what they want to be – including pop stars, actors and sportspeople.

What they all share is that they know what it's like to have diabetes at your age. We'd welcome your comments on their stories – and we'd love to hear your diabetes story too.

You can see plenty of examples below, and we also have a Stories in brief page with even more.
