"It's studies just like this that give me great hope in finding a solution for diabetes – research is truly incredible"
Claire lives in Northern Ireland with her husband Shane and three sons. Claire was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes aged three and over 25 years later, her son Enda was diagnosed at the same age. Claire also has two siblings living with type 1 diabetes. She tells us why she wants to have her other children screened for type 1 diabetes through the ELSA study, co-funded by us here at Diabetes UK, which has just launched in Northern Ireland.
