Diabetes and Life

Having diabetes doesn't mean you can't still do whatever you want to do. Your dreams can still come true.

  • Diabetes won’t stop you making your dreams come true.
  • Having diabetes should not interfere with life plans, just as it shouldn’t interfere with sport.
  • Just look at many brilliant people who have diabetes. Actors, musicians, professional football players, teachers, doctors and people everywhere who have diabetes and don’t let it stand in their way.
  • Understanding is the key to not letting diabetes interfere with your life.
  • If you learn to manage diabetes well using a combination of diet, exercise and medication/insulin you can lead a long, happy life.
