Kid Blog Star of the Week – Growing Up With T1 Diabetes

This week’s Kid Blog Star is ten-year-old Lewis, who blogs about what it’s like to be Growing Up With Type 1 Diabetes.

Lewis was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when he was 4, and this is his story. He thought it would be nice to tell everyone about his good moments and the not so good, so he started the blog in January.

Lewis also races in a junior karting league and is involved in the Scouts. This is a big year for him as he’s leaving Primary School and moving to Secondary. So living with diabetes isn’t the only adventure Lewis is undertaking!

  14. Great post! Thank you for the insightful article. I would like to include a little bit more information that long-term hyperglycemia during diabetes causes chronic damage and dysfunction of various tissues, especially the eyes, kidneys, heart, blood vessels, and nerves.
