Closed petition Create a campaign to raise awareness of the symptoms of type 1 diabetes

The number of young people being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes is rising at an alarming rate. The symptoms are often missed or explained away as flu. If left undiagnosed the outcome is fatal. If diagnosis is delayed the result is life changing. We need a campaign to highlight the symptoms.

The statistics are frightening.
We need to raise awareness of the symptoms like we have had with meningitis and more recently sepsis.
