Diagnosed with type 2 diabetes at 26
“I’ve learnt that moving forward is often about taking baby steps, cutting down on sugar in small steps, setting up reminders so I don’t forget to take my medication. All these things add up.”
Diagnosed at 26 with type 2 diabetes and misdiagnosed almost a year later with type 1, it took another two years for Hannah’s type 2 diagnosis to be confirmed. Now 29, Hannah wants to make others aware of type 2 diabetes in young adults and remind people diagnosed in their 20s like her that they're not alone.
