    Type of diabetes:
    Type 1
    Treatment type:
    Pump
    Medication:
    Novorapid, Levothyroxine and red wine.
    Exercise:
    Dog, bike and running around like a legless chicken..
    Likes:
    Living life to the full, running, cycling, skiing, travelling, sunshine, helping others and big smiles.
    Dislikes:
    Hypos, rude people, ignorance and grey days.
    Diagnosed type 1 - in 2013 after a week's skiing holiday during which I skied my first black run and then celebrated by drinking a can of coke, in fact I didn't stop drinking coke that week...

    I try hard to not let type 1 rule my life, it's like walking a tightrope every day. However I challenge myself to defy this condition, so continue to ski each year, taken up riding a road bike, started running in 2017, run each week at various park runs and completed my 50th park run in August 2019.

    Take it one day at a time, help others and don't take life too seriously.
