Hi, Iâ€™m Phillip, living with Type 1 Diabetes.
Being diagnosed with Diabetes is quite daunting. There is certainly a lot to learn about living with the condition but with the right education and support we can continue to lead a full and healthy lifestyle.
I control my glucose levels by counting my carbohydrate intake and adjusting insulin doses accordingly. Five or six injections a day is now the norm, but this is through choice as it allows freedom for varying activities throughout the day.
I am happy to talk to anyone about living with diabetes.
Diabetes: Type 1
Year of Diagnosis: 1992
