Oliver and Type 1 diabetes

Oliver and his mum Sue would like to share the video they made about Oliver's diabetes.

"Doing the video with my mum and brother for World Diabetes Day was lots of fun. My friends at school laughed when they watched it at assembly and thought I was funny, but they also learnt lots and now understand more. Now they don't even ask me what my pump is.

Since doing the video I can now have school dinners as a teacher is able to help me carbohydrate count my food and I am very happy."

Here, Oliver, aged nine, speaks about his experience of diabetes, how he manages it on a day-to-day basis and what he thinks about his condition. Watch Oliver's video.
