    A diabetes diagnosis is likely to be life altering but it doesn’t have to define you. New technologies now make the management of Type 1 diabetes much easier, even for children, as Jaymi and her daughter Ruby explain.

    And with Type 2 diabetes sometimes a few lifestyle changes can make a huge difference.

    But any road to self-improvement can be lonely and frustrating at times, so if you need help managing your Type 2 diabetes, we’re here to help [Just +] and if you have another health concern you can talk to our team of nurses 24/7.
