My name is Meghan, I live in Southampton. I was diagnosed with type 1 Diabetes on the 23rd January 2007.
Having type 1 Diabetes has not always been easy and every day can bring a new challenge but with support, knowledge and understanding from family, friends and our health professionals we can lead a normal and fulfilling life with diabetes.
I currently treat my diabetes using an Insulin pump and carbohydrate counting as well as regular blood sugar testing.
I am very open and honest about my diabetes and love the chance to talk to people about it all and help support others with the diagnosis.
