FORMER TV presenter Rob Palmer shared his experience living with type 1 diabetes during a visit to Stirling this month.

The former Betters Homes and Gardens handyman spoke to a crowd of 80 people at the Type 1 Diabetes Family Centre about living with the autoimmune condition since he was aged seven.

“It’s great to see so many families come together with shared concerns but also shared determination to tackle life with type 1 diabetes front on,” he said.

Centre adult community co-ordinator Gabby Lane said his message inspired attendees.

“Type 1 diabetes is not easy; it requires around-the-clock blood glucose monitoring, insulin delivery and mindset management,” she said.

“We are fortunate to have Rob Palmer as a role model who encourages our community to not let type 1 diabetes hold you back from living an extraordinary life.”
