Kaitlyn's Story: T1D Diagnosis during COVID Lockdown

by IBD Medical on October 05, 2021

We'd like to introduce Kaitlyn, someone who started having some symptoms during the recent COVD lockdowns and then discovered that she was diagnosed with T1D. We've asked her to share a bit about her experience leading up to the day that changed her life as we believe it's important to provide a platform for people to connect and feel heard. Knowing there are people who are going through the same challenges can help the journey feel less lonely and daunting, which is something Kaitlyn is hoping her story will do. 

 

Meet Kaitlyn!

Kaitlyn is currently 28 years old from Brisbane, Australia and was only quite recently diagnosed on the 30th September 2020. Not being someone who normally goes to the doctors, Kaitlyn seeked help and got a routine check after her symptoms started to progressively get worse. Have a listen to her recap her beginning journey!
