Diabetes and daily life

As a person with diabetes you are no different from any other person living in Australia. Having 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 when you are at work, if you are travelling or driving for example, there are a number of things you need to consider.
