Im 19 and have recently been told I have diabetes type 1!!! I lost 2 stone in 8 weeks and was waking every hour of the night drinking lots of water and going to the toilet.

With diabetes it is your pancreas organ that produces insulin for the body to stop sugar levels rising shuts down then all your body is doing is getting full of sugar!

If this was to be untreated your body would get shriveled up and would eventuarly die but with treatment /injections of insulin, it can balance it out and you will be fine with the right diet and if you look after yourself!

if you do not, in later life people with diabetes can go blind have heart probles , strokes ect NOT GOOD"!
