Share your experience of diabetes

No two people have the same experience of diabetes. The symptoms that each person has can differ according to lifestyle choices, age, faith/religion and cultural background for example.

  • What made you see your GP before you were diagnosed with diabetes?
  • Was it because you knew you had diabetes?
  • Was it just a routine visit?
  • What was your first reaction when you were diagnosed with diabetes?
  • How do you treat your diabetes – diet, tablets and/or insulin?
  • If you are not originally from the UK, how is diabetes treated in your country of origin?
