#diabeteschat – Alyssa Faulkner

This week on the #diabeteschat we are joined by Alyssa Faulkner and our hosting team are Tony and Claire.

Alyssa was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2013. She has been involved in the diabetes community since she
was diagnosed initially through a Facebook group for teenagers with type 1 diabetes and then by joining
Twitter/X. She volunteered for the youth project with Diabetes Scotland. She started a blog on her journey with type 1 diabetes called The Pumptastic Scot. This has expanded to included posts from other people about type 1 diabetes.

In this #diabeteschat we spoke to Alyssa about:
💙 her diabetes diagnosis & journey

💙 epilepsy & hypo seizures
💙 HCl and technology
