Welcome to SimplyDiabetic.
Thank you for visiting my website.
My name is Felix and I've lived with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) since I was 11 years old. As I grew up into adulthood, navigating my way through life with T1D was a bumpy and foggy path. There was no user manual or 'how to' guides during these difficult years, leaving me to learn everything from first hand experience.
After living with T1D as a teenager, a student and now an adult, I have all the knowledge and understanding of a life with T1D that I so desperately wanted when I was younger.
Whilst I cannot go back in time and hand over the knowledge I now have to my old self, I can at least try to support those who are now in the positions I have been in.
Not a lot of people realise how hard a life with T1D can be! Finding the support you need can sometimes be hard and frustrating. In an effort to help those in this position, I have set up SimplyDiabetic for anyone above the age of 11 to learn more about their condition and enable them to see how I've maintained a healthy HbA1c despite my hectic lifestyle.
If you have T1D, or are a parent, sibling or friend of someone that does, my first hand accounts of living with this condition can offer you a realistic and sensible approach to obstacles you might be facing.
Learn how I live simply with Type 1 Diabetes.
