    Heyy. I've just got back from the hospital for a check up - HbA1c = 6.6%
    Anyway, i'm heading off to uni in September 2010, and she said that as a diabetic, I would qualify for a grant, for medical needs, eg a fridge in my bedroom to store medication.
    Not sure where to find the details of this.
    Any help would be much appreciated!
    Cheers

    Student welfare association would be the best place to start I should think

    Your uni should have one.

    You should be entitled to Student Disabled Allowance, this would also cover you for expenses etc in relation to your diabetes. I am a University student and recieve this, however, I have another medical condition apart from Diabetes. It would be worth checking this out now as it can take 6 months to get the allowance from application forms to getting the actual allowance. Good luck.
