diabetest1-comic-opt_page_01

Revolve Comics along with leading diabetes experts in Southampton and Portsmouth transform young patients’ understanding of the condition – by turning them into comic book superheroes. Different people respond to the diagnosis in different ways – some like to talk it through, with others preferring to read books and leaflets.

The hope is that this comic book provides another means of spreading the type 1 diabetes message through art and that the story will inform and educate anyone who reads it. For those readers who are newly-diagnosed, they will feel more empowered to look after themselves if not already. It is possible to live a long, healthy life with type 1 diabetes.
