‘It’s something I’ve lived with for a long time’: Britain’s Got Talent star Tom Ball, 23, has revealed his battle with type 1 diabetes to raise awareness

“The disease is something I’ve lived with for a long time and was officially diagnosed with when I was eight,” he told the publication.

He said some of his students saw him checking his blood sugar levels one day and asked questions, urging him to speak openly about his struggle.

“But it wasn’t until my students started asking questions about it when they saw me checking my blood sugar once that I realized how important it was to talk about it and help them understand.”

In the UK, around 90 per cent of diabetic adults have type 2 diabetes

Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person’s blood sugar levels to become too high.

There are two main types of diabetes:

– Type 1, in which the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells.

– Type 2, in which the body does not produce enough insulin or the body cells do not respond to insulin.

Type 2 diabetes is far more common than type 1 diabetes.

In the UK, around 90% of adults with type 2 diabetes have type 2 diabetes.

The risk of type 2 diabetes can be reduced with a healthy diet, regular exercise, and achieving a healthy weight.

The main symptoms of diabetes are: feeling very thirsty, urinating more frequently (especially at night), feeling very tired, weight loss and loss of muscle mass.
