The Paula Carr Diabetes Trust has launched a patient mentoring campaign to support patients who have been newly diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. The charity is inviting people already living with diabetes to take part in a new film project called Pearls of Wisdom. The idea is for patients to share their own personal tips to help newly diagnosed patients take control of their condition.
Ros Debling, a Trustee of the Paula Carr Diabetes Trust, is appearing in a new film on the charity’s website to launch the campaign. As a Type 1 Diabetes patient for the last 28 years, she offers her own tip to newly diagnosed patients and goes onto encourage other diabetes patients to get involved with the film project.
She says: “I remember being terrified when I was diagnosed all those years ago. Diabetes is a serious and life changing disease and newly diagnosed patients need lots of help to get used to managing their condition.”
