I agree that young people and younger adults need more help! I still class myself as a young adult although I doubt that I am at 34 lol. Some books I have read have been brilliant - diabetic athletes handbook and dealing with diabetes burnout for example. It's probably the case that the nhs cannot endorse books or forums but it certainly makes things slightly different when you find them! I live a totally different life now since type 1 diagnosis, I think someone else said they are healthier and make better choices. I know I do! It's easy to feel that those without diabetes can do what they want and eat what they want but nobody should hammer sweets and junk food and drink loads of booze. remember to be easy on yourself we are all only human!
