    You read right! This year's Conference for people with diabetes is now free entry! Whoop whoop!
    Based up in Nottingham it will be a great opportunity to get together - share tips on diet, exercise, meds and generally how to live well with diabetes.

    Our health should be our number one priority, so let's make time for a bit of TLC. We're worth it!;)

    Book a place for the 26th and 27th February.

    What a shame that they didn't have a tick box option for a Low carbohydrate meal option.

    There is the option to ask for low carb, in 'other requirements' though.

    I've cancelled my birthday celebrations to come - hopefully I'll get some good info that will help me reach more birthdays in the future though!

    That's great @Hipsterbetic!
    This forum is a great place to share and learn from others, but it's hard to beat meeting and sharing with others face to face - especially in a place where having diabetes is the 'norm'. :)

    Last year we had mainly T1 come along, some friends and family non-D and a handful of T2s. Hopefully we are gradually turning this around - certainly the event is open to all and everybody is welcome, whether non,pre,T1,T2 or even gestational. There will be a wealth of experience there.
    Come on all you amazing T2s - who's up for joining in?:)
