My name is Keegan Richard Hall I am 24 years old, was born on the 16th December 1988.  I come from Johannesburg, South Africa and was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when I was 16 years old.

Living with Diabetes is not the only thing in my life that defines who I am but it does play an important part.

I will share with you insight and stories from having an HbA1c of 14% to becoming the President-Elect for the International Diabetes Federation Young Leaders in Diabetes.

This is a platform where people can discuss and share their though about living with diabetes and so traveling toward the main theme of this blog that Diabetes Unites, not only those living with Diabetes but all people who are affected by Diabetes

  1. Keegan, I thought I recognized your name from the International Diabetes Federation!

    I just want to share this with you – I was diagnosed in July of this year. As is typical with many newly diagnosed diabetics, I hit a wall of anger and depression.

    One day I was surfing along merrily and I came across the International Diabetes Federation’s website and, ultimately, the Young Leaders in Diabetes.

    It was through reading stories like yours and that of your fellow leaders that gave me a renewed sense of hope. Amazing how you can reach out to a T2D all the way in Canada and actually make a difference!

    So thank you. Your courage and tenacity has given me more than just a reason to fight for me and my diabetes. I fight for *everyone* with diabetes.

    • Thank you so much for your comment.

      I am so very happy that the Young Leaders in Diabetes have inspired you as much as they have inspired me.

      I look forward to you viewing my blog and keep your comments, suggestions and Likes coming.


      P.S. Welcome to the D-ARMY
