1 diabetics have been to see it, and have

talked about it, more are coming to see

the show. Calling it Pricks was partly a fun

title to get people's attention, but it's also

true. I felt that the public needed to know

the facts about what living with diabetes

is like. So, while I'm pleased the Type I

diabetes community has supported me,

I still hope to get the message across to

the wider community."

Regarding CGM options, Byrne used

a FreeStyle Libre after her play was

accepted to be shown at the Edinburgh

Festival in August 2018. "I'd been having

a lot of hypos," she says, "and the Libre

changed my life, easily knowing what my

blood sugar was, was amazing, but I was

still having a lot of hypos and I needed the

alarms that a Dexcom has. My consultant

had told me about the Dexcom but I

couldn't get in time for my Edinburgh run,

but when I got back, I was put on the

waiting list for it and I got my Dexcom G6

in December." It is the best thing, I think

it's amazing. It can tell me if I'm going up

or down and it can alert me to possible

hypos."

This diabetes technology has certainly

enabled Byrne to be more confident

about performing her play on tour, going

on stage wearing an Omnipod insulin

pump and a Dexcom sensor. But she

takes no chances, "I do hide some juice

in a secret drawer on stage, but I haven't

needed to use it yet. If I did, I would just

do a test on stage and make it part of the

show. In fact I do test myself as part of the

performance anyway, so I do know what's

going on with my control during the act. I

can see the Dexcom results on my phone

and I can see my patterns on the Clarity

app. I wear my Omnipod on my thigh,

and as far as I am aware no one tends

to notice it."
