Siddharth Sharma

Patient Leader

I am 28 yr old engineer who suddenly got diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes (hypothyroid too) on 21 October 2015. The day of diagnosis way the best day as not knowing what is wrong with you can be very demoralising. Born in india and now living in England i have seen and felt the ignorance about type 1 diabetes and a battle that i fight every day. Being an athlete all my life I am passionate about getting diabetics involved in sports to help them manage their blood sugars and gain back self confidence. As a data engineer I love to experiment and study trends and analysis to help others understand how their body is behaving to their medication and exercise. Aim - to motivate and inspire others
