Chloe Frahm - Our Community
Meet Chloe Frahm, this is her story.

“My name is Chloe. I was diagnosed with T1D at the age of 10. Little did I know at that point in time my life was about to change dramatically. Living with T1 has taught me so much about life and how to appreciate the little things.

One of the main things I have had to overcome in this journey is to know that diabetes doesn’t own you, you own IT. Sometimes it may seem like we are limited to achieving things, but that is not the case at all. There are so many things in the world that we are still able to achieve whilst handling T1. For many years I was on MDI and I decided to change to a pump as well as the CGM which loops together. Being on a pump with the CGM has changed my sugar levels drastically for the better. It has kept me more in range, kept my day to day life much simpler as well as sleeping through the night and has made me feel a lot more relaxed within myself. I am very active at the gym and in work and that is a challenge by itself but having the pump there to support your sugar levels is life changing. Don’t be afraid to ask for help if you need, don’t be afraid to do things your way and find out what works for you!”

Chloe’s story is the first post in our new ‘Our Community’ series where we will be highlighting some of the amazing people within the Type 1 community. 💫
