MEET LENNY

Hi, I'm Lenny the Lion! Just like you, I have Insulin Dependent diabetes and I'm here to be your friend and give you some great ways to look after yourself.

There are loads of other kids with Insulin Dependent diabetes too, so you're never alone. You can still have fun and you'll find lots of cool tips here.

COUNTING CARBS

You probably know that counting carbs is super important when you have Insulin Dependent diabetes. I make it sooooo easy to plan your meals, snacks and even treats and party food on special occasions, thanks to my handy Lenny games and apps.

FEELING BETTER

It's OK to have lots of different feelings about diabetes and you're not alone. The more you learn about Insulin Dependent diabetes, the more you'll feel in control and be able to handle it as part of everyday life. We know what you're going through and if you ever feel down, worried, scared or angry, talk to your doctor or someone close to you.

 

LENNY’S TIPS

Signs of low blood glucose levels may be: headaches, pounding heart, dizziness, shaking, sweating.
