Are You Type 1 Aware?

Earlier this year, Diabetes UK and JDRF launched an amazing educational video which asks 'Are you Type 1 Aware'?

It looks at those who develop T1 during their childhood years and aims to raise awareness of the symptoms, which although obvious, can be mis-diagnosed or unwittingly ignored. If parents are aware of the symptoms then children are much more likely to be diagnosed before they reach life threatening DKA therefore reducing their chances of becoming seriously ill.

DUK and JDRF are hoping to get a million hits before World Diabetes Day in November, so please share this video with as many people as you can, both on and offline.

You could save a childs life.
