WE WOULD LIKE TO SHARE OUR STORIES REGARDING OUR JOURNEYS WITH TYPE 2 DIABETES

We understand that being diagnosed with a chronic condition such as Type 2 Diabetes can be difficult for many. We want you to know that you are not alone.

wearewell.uk is where real people, with real life-changing chronic conditions, are given the opportunity to talk about the experiences they've had, and the changes they've made since getting diagnosed.

This isn't a place where doctors and nurses  tell you what to do - or even tell you off. It's where people, like you, share what they've been through and what they've learned along the way so that you can feel a little more prepared, and a little more in control.

Read Bill's Story

Bill liked the odd bacon roll and the occasional pint at the pub and the more-than occasional chocolate bar as a treat at the end of a long day. He enjoyed life. But the first signs that something was wrong came when he found himself unable to perform sexually. “I thought, ‘perhaps he doesn’t love me anymore’,” explains his wife, Ann. “Perhaps he’s found someone else. Perhaps our marriage is over.” But it wasn’t his feelings for Ann that were the problem.

Read Urmita's Story

Like a lot of Mums, Urmita had always been the cook in her family. Home comforts such as chapatis and rice were among her specialities. But when she was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in November 2009, she couldn’t help consider the effect of those starchy, high-carb foods. In this first part of the video series following her journey to tackle the disease, she confesses, “it was almost a reflection of the way I was living.”

Read Rob's Story

In his youth, Rob was a keen bodybuilder. He looked after himself, made sure he was fit, and was always able to push himself to the limit. Even as a child at school, he could climb the ropes in the school gym to the top, reaching out to touch that highest point.

We Are Well.UK comprises a series of interviews and documentaries created & funded by AstraZeneca UK. AstraZeneca seeks to provide people living with chronic conditions engaging educational content that may help improve their understanding of their condition and how to live with it, as well as informing better conversations with their treating healthcare professionals. The platform shares experiences of patients living with long-term conditions – these experiences may not be representative of all patients.

If you have any concerns about your health, AstraZeneca encourages you to discuss these concerns with your Doctor, Nurse, or Pharmacist as soon as possible.

If you experience any side-effects with any medicines you are taking, you can report them via the Yellow Card Scheme at https://yellowcard.mhra.gov.uk/
