    30. Liam: Look after your diabetes now and it will look after you in the future

    In this episode, I speak to Liam who has been living with type 1 diabetes for 24 years. Liam is a good friend who I met through the diabetes online community. Our experiences of type 1 in some areas are similar particularly as we both come from single-parent families. Liam and I also discuss his diagnosis story and he was in a coma for 6 weeks, how his upbringing impacted his life with type 1, the struggles that he experienced and his experience of being a dad whilst living with type 1.

    Liam's mum also lived with type 1 diabetes from a very young age and very sadly passed away from complications of type 1. Liam's mum helped to change the landscape of type 1 diabetes in the UK.  Liam talks openly about life with his mum. Liam also shares how his experience of multiple DKA's changed how he managed his type 1 diabetes.

Informative and emotional at times

In this podcast, Dan interviews a wide variety of different people who all have different experiences living with type 1 diabetes. As a parent of a young child with type 1 it has helped me to connect with others, and opened my eyes to the various different experiences people have as well as inspiring me and validating my own struggles with diabetes. Thanks Dan and keep up the great work!
