Diagnosed in 2009.
When I went into remission, I was so happy. They tell you you’re never ‘cured’. You’re in remission, because your diabetes can come back at any time.
After being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, Fatima worked hard to change her eating habits and increase her activity levels. Now after losing nearly three stone and putting her diabetes into remission, she volunteers as one of our Community Champions, raising awareness of diabetes and Diabetes UK in her local community.
