Emma's son Jack diagnosed at just 17 days old.
Jack would definitely be dead if it wasn’t for this research. It’s given me my son back.
Jack has neonatal diabetes, a rare genetic type of diabetes which can often be mistaken as type 1 diabetes. Diabetes UK-funded research helped to get Jack the right diagnosis and show that for some people it could be treated with tablets instead of insulin. Emma was told for Jack to switch – and found that their lives turned around quickly thanks to what Emma described as a miracle.
