As a teenager, you’ll probably find yourself busy juggling things like study, work, relationships, finances and parties. You may be thinking about the future, things like work, uni and moving out of home. Having diabetes on top of all the usual teenage stuff like a busy social life and lots of demands can be tricky to manage.
As you get older you’ll also find that you move on from paediatric to adult diabetes care. Depending on where you go, this might happen in your late teenage years or when other things change e.g. you start going to work. It’s important to plan your move from paediatric to adult care so that you can still enjoy yourself without running into too much trouble with your diabetes.
