  I'm no different because I'm a diabetic
Updated 01 May 2003, 09.38
Insulin injections help control diabetes
Carly has had diabetes for many years.

In her report she tells us that she just wants to be treated like everyone else.

"Diabetes is a condition and people who have diabetes are just normal like everyone else!

I have had diabetes for 10 years this Christmas and I'm sick of people thinking that I'm abnormal because of it.

Insulin injections

Diabetes is where the pancreas (an organ below the lungs) stops working so people have to inject themselves with insulin (with a needle).

You can't catch diabetes and it can't be prevented.

We're the same

My intention is to let everybody know about diabetes as it is becoming more and more common in the UK and America.

If you ever meet anybody who is diabetic please don't treat them differently from anybody else."

Carly, 13, Birmingham


Why don't you write us a Press Pack report - and get it published on the site?!

It can be about anything that's happened in your local area - or your views on the news.
