    Diabetes casting call: is there anyone with diabetes, or a parent of a child who has diabetes that would like to be in a short 3 minute video about how diabetes has affected them and how they manage it? We are making videos about a variety of diabetes topics.

    Please drop us a message, PM or email... 8)

    Hi, I don't know if you'd want to hear my side of it all. I have been Type 1 for nearly 3 years and still not coping, but am going on the pump next week. My Dad was also a Type 1. I am 36.

    Jenni :D

    Hi,
    Ive been type 1 for 27 years, age 36 now, have three great kids, all healthy, (except my youngest is autisic, dont think thats to do with diabetes thou.). I would love to share my life of diabetes, specially having resistances to insulin, and how some medical professions didnt except that it can be possible.

    Can I be of any use? Type 1 for 13 months, working as cabin crew for a major airline. Didn't go down great work but managed to sucessfully fight my corner and not let diabetes affect my lifestyle! (DAFNE trained).

    I was put foreward five years ago for the Pump, but money ect. , I went on the DAFNE and I have to say if you have a chance to go on this don't refuse, it really has helped and I go onto the Pump next Wednesday. I would be only to pleased to help with any advertisment and answer questions, I have very bad problems with sitting down, I'm always on the go say hence the Hypos.
