I was thirsty all the time. I would use the toilet more than normal and some mornings even wake up with a wet bed!
After some time, my parents noticed that I wasn't my usual self and brought me to this hospital. It was here that I found out I had Type 1 Diabetes, just like you!
Did the nurses and doctors also take your blood and hurt you?
Kate and Steven set off to find Sister Jenny.
Yes but I had the best nurse in this hospital who helped me through it all! She explained every single test to me and helped me to understand all the big words that the doctors were using. Her name is Sister Jenny and I'm sure she'd be happy to do the same for you!
Hi kids! Lovely to meet you, Steven!
There she is! Hello, Sister Jenny! This is my friend Steven.
Steven was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Please could you explain the disease to him they way you explained it to me?
Yes, of course! You are not alone, Steven! Let me help you understand what is happening inside your body...
Our bodies are made up of millions and millions of cells, just like the ones shown here!
