Are you caring for someone with a learning disability and diabetes?


#1

How can parents and carers of children, young people and adults with Diabetes & Learning Disabilities help us?
We want to know about your experiences of getting support, the issues you faced with possible diet changes and similar? What worked for you? If you could share tips with one other family in your position, what would you recommend?

We know there are two types of Diabetes but we want to know is there any difference when accessing the support you need. Is it easier or harder with a specific type? Do children with type 1 get better support because it’s often diagnosed earlier? Or is there no difference?
We have a webchat on Feb 6th 830 to 930 and we would love to hear from you.
