Diagnosed in 2014.
I make sure I get all my diabetes checks, to reduce my risk of complications.
Sarah realised she needed to start taking her diabetes seriously and began with learning more about 15 different health checks and services everyone with diabetes should get. She knew this would help her manage her diabetes, and so help her prevent serious diabetes complications, like sight loss, heart problems and foot problems that could lead to amputation.
She now makes sure she gets all her checks, and she knows what she needs to do herself too, in between her appointments.
