    Hi, I was diagnosed almost 2 months ago. I'm almost 19 but had the exact same problems as you (needing to pee a lot and weight loss). I also went into a walk in center and got taken to hospital

    Well I’m definitely late to this forum and even this app. Still trying to find my way around.

    But Hey guys, I’m Cameron!

    I’m 18y/o live in Scotland. I was diagnosed with diabetes in 2005 so I’ve had it 13years+. It’s been a lot of fun, haha. I honestly don’t remember much about my diagnosis except from waking up in hospital one day to my first ever injection and meal. I don’t have the greatest control I guess. My latest A1c was 45 but the libre shows flaws. Guessing it’s time to work on them.
