Laura H – Sugarbuddy

Hello, my name is Laura.

I am an oceanographer, scuba diver, traveller, rock climber, watersport enthusiast, triathlete, beginner gymnast, rallye driver, and knitter! I have lived with Type 1 diabetes for over 10 years and though this has not stopped me from living a highly active lifestyle, it has not always been easy. A loyal team of family, friends, and dedicated healthcare professionals has always been there to help me through the low times (both physically and mentally). As a Sugarbuddy, I am here to listen to and support those struggling with any aspect of Type 1 diabetes; remember that you do not have to face this alone.

Diabetes: Type 1
Year of Birth: 1986
Year of Diagnosis: 2003
