In this episode i'm joined by Lucy and Chloe who run the Instagram page @youngwildanddiabetic. The girls took the plunge and became content creators at the start of lockdown and over the course of a few months have amassed thousands of loyal followers. They are at the start of something big here and it was a pleasure to chat to them on the show.

Here's what the girls had to say: we are Lucy & Chloe and have been best friends for over 10 years now. In 2012 Lucy was diagnosed with Type 1 and took it in her stride with me by her side learning about T1 and being there throughout her highs and lows. And then in 2018 3 days after my 21st birthday (after being ill for a long time) I was diagnosed with T1 through severe DKA! It was such a shock for us - I think we still are in disbelief really. But it has brought us closer than we ever thought possible. We started our page - @youngwildanddiabetic on insta at the beginning of lockdown but it’s been something we wanted to do for a long time and finally we felt why not! We really want to use our platform to share our stories and raise awareness of T1 and how we don’t let it stop us from living our best lives haha - our experiences though diagnosis etc have been completely different and we love learning from each other and others in the community.
