Nina Revello, 19, is living proof that with careful management, diabetics can live full and productive lives. Diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, she says that it does get easier once you become familiar with the process and how each thing affects your body.
“The support of my family, friends and doctors along the way has helped me to adjust and adapt to the changes that I have needed to make.”
Nina told The Newsroom it’s no walk in the park though.
“It can be time consuming and a hassle but I’ve learnt to handle it and just keep going. Having diabetes for over 15 years now, I recognise that I have a long way to go and a lot to learn.” – Video report by Kiera Thanos
