Type 1 diabetes (young people)

In this section you can find out about the experience of type 1 diabetes by listening to young people share their personal stories on film.

Researchers originally talked to 39 young people in their own homes, and a further 7 interviews were added in 2017. Find out what people said about issues such as symptoms, doing insulin injections, and friends and relationships.
