As a person with diabetes you are no different from any other person living in Australia. Living with diabetes does not change your basic needs, wants and desires. It will make some aspects of life more challenging, but it doesn’t define who you are or prevent you from enjoying and participating in life.
It is important to remember however that during the course of your life, when you are at work or if you are travelling or driving, there are a number of things you need to consider.
