Our Stories

I attended the CHOICE programme in Altnagelvin Hospital in October. I was nervous about going but really enjoyed it. It was good to meet other children the same age as me with diabetes. Hollie, aged 14 from Claudy
I attended the CHOICE course in Altnagelvin Hospital and thought it was brilliant. It was so helpful and showed me how to count my carbohydrates better. My Mum can now adjust my insulin more. Edel, aged 12 from Dungiven
I was diagnosed with diabetes when I was 14. My sister Caitlin is 8 and was diagnosed when she was 16 months. We have just completed the CHOICE programme. The ladies were very supportive to us. Megan, aged 16 from Enniskillen
It has given us a better understanding of dealing with diabetes as a family. Being able to manage and control all meals and insulin with the information we have learned at CHOICE is invaluable. Parent, Northern Ireland
