Request case studies

Many of our supporters are happy to share their experiences of living with type 1 with media.

We have hundreds of people who are willing to talk about the realities of living with type 1. From families living with the condition, to parents caring for young children with type 1, and also adults experiences of type 1, we have a wide range of case studies.

Individuals are happy to share their stories of dealing with the following:

  • Episodes of Hypoglycaemia (low blood glucose) and high blood sugar (hyperglycaemia) which has in some cases led to the life threatening condition of Diabetic Ketoacidosis.
  • Long term complications of living with type 1
  • Social and psychological effects of living with type 1 diabetes
  • Dealing with type 1 in school and in the workplace

If you have a specific case study request, then please send details of the media opportunity to Michael Connellan at or call 07908 155480.
