Type 1 on 1: The Diaries - Are you dia-beaten‪?‬ Type 1 on 1 | Diabetes Stories

Welcome to Type 1 on 1: The Diaries! Writer and broadcaster Jen Grieves and producer Ami Bennett are good friends - who both happen to live with type 1 diabetes. For this special spin-off series of Type 1 on 1, nana diabetic Jen (25 years) and baby diabetic Ami (3 years) chat through the frustrating, funny and challenging experiences they’ve faced each week thanks to this ridiculous condition. All in the hope that their stories might help you too.

We’re back for more and it’s an absolute gallop through diabetes land this week, with a tropical jungle rainstorm thrown in for good measure (please excuse the audio!)

We discuss whether a low or a high blood sugar is worse to experience, Ami’s still fighting with her long-acting insulin, Jen’s busy regaling us with tales of being caught out by her insulin pump expiry when it happens AGAIN mid-tale, and we realise that trying to describe the different parts of an innocuous little needle is in fact, impossible. Oh, and speaking of the impossible, there’s a lovely bit of miraculous pizza bolus success to bask in (while it lasts). If you know, you know.
