JDRF One Walk Cardiff 2017 photos by Jenny Potter Type 1 diabetes is an auto immune disease with no cure it is completely different from type 2 diabetes so please do research in order to know the difference. My son has had this incurable disease since the age of 2 and during this time he has had to have over 43,800 finger blood tests and over 24,000 insulin injections. This illness is 24-7 so when you are getting your 8 hours sleep I will be awake all night testing bloods seeing if blood sugars are on the way up which may then need a correction dose of insulin or if bloods bloods drop I will be dealing with hypo and giving my son juice and carbs in order to bring bloods up. If he has a sickness bug on top of the type 1 diabetes I will be making sure ketones do not rise above 3ml which will be he will need to go into hospital. This illness needs more research by JDRF so please please donate and visit my just giving site. www.jennypotter.com and donate thanks so much x Jenny and Harry.
