Diagnosed age 34 in 1979.
When I was first diagnosed, my GP told me that I had diabetes and I didn’t even know there were different types at the time. I just knew I had diabetes.
Member and fundraiser, Charlie Churchill, vividly remembers the day he was diagnosed with Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults (LADA) at the age of 34. Since then, he’s learnt to adjust to life with diabetes and uses his knowledge and positivity to help others in a similar situation.
