Quotes on elearning from MyType1

"Hello, I am 26 years old and I have been a Type 1 Diabetic for 20 years. I live in Leeds and am originally from Northumberland. I currently work in Digital Healthcare alongside raising awareness of T1D, creating T1D-centered content on Social Media, and working closely with Diabetes UK to help create a supportive network for young people living with Type 1 Diabetes across the North.
The Type 1 diabetes and Physical Activity course is absolutely fantastic! It has completely changed how I manage my diabetes whilst staying active. I had no idea how much a big part exercise has in blood sugar levels. It is so fantastic to see resources available like this, since completing the course and really focusing on how I manage my diabetes around exercise, my HbA1c has decreased dramatically. My mental health around Diabetes has never been better and I finally get to enjoy exercising!"
