Was studying film in Vancouver, Canada. Healthy as ever returning back to England my sleep pattern went fubar, started peeing like a race horse not batting it all off as if it was my body sorting itself out after a great student year. I was running half marathons twice a week, climbed Snowdon with a mate for his birthday with the toilet issue becoming more regular. I go for a blood test and get called back ASAP The Nurse tells me I have 28.8 blood glucose and could go Ketonal (I think that's how it's spelt). My first dose of nova rapid insulin and I go from being able to do half marathons to barely being able to walk 5 feet. Being told you have to adapt your lifestyle and to inject four times a day, it's a big deal I'm sure people here will agree. NHS have been fantastic and stuck with me I recently ran a full marathon in October, That's basically my story I just wanted to get off my chest also would love to speak to anyone ESPECIALLY anyone diagnosed 20 - 27 I'm told there's a lot of us out there, sure don't feel like that.

Though you've been active through your years of being "healthy" you can still stay active doing what you enjoy,yet to do so be prepared before and after the fact. (fruits,snacks,etc.. ) I've had the type 1 for sometime,always to stay active,doing something,wether it be playing sports to walking the neighborhood area,being aware of how you feel will help while being active in sports.
