“I thought I was tired from iron deficiency – it was a shock to be diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in my 40s.”

Given the hectic pace of modern life, exhaustion seems to be an affliction that affects all of us at some point. When Majella Hollywood started feeling more tired than usual, going to the bathroom more often at night and feeling thirstier than usual, she blamed it on being overwork and her recent 40th birthday.

However, after a visit to her GP, she was shocked to discover that she had type 1 diabetes, a condition historically referred to as “juvenile diabetes” and one of the most prevalent chronic diseases of childhood and adolescence. It is now known that it can develop at any age, with half of newly diagnosed cases occurring in adults, like Majella.
