A couple of week ago it was Diabetes Week, during the week a lot people shared their encouraging and honest stories. Diabetes UK’s theme for this year was ‘I Can’ where people  with diabetes or carers who care for a loved one with diabetes talked about the things they can do and have overcome. You can see some of the example of people’s tweets, videos, pictures and stories down below in the slideshow and for a more please click here.
