Meet Debbie – a young girl with diabetes type 1. Debbie invites readers to learn about this type of diabetes from her perspective, describing how it feels to have high and low blood sugar levels. She explains how she can monitor her blood sugar and controls it with medication. Debbie also talks about the challenges of having diabetes and lets readers know how she can be helped and supported.
