the end; they knew that's where they'd

find my blood test kit and my insulin," he

recalls, "Basically I'm never without it. It's

brilliant for travelling and it's been all over

the world with me. I took it with me to

New York, and had it with me in Prague.

I only have problems with travelling when

I'm trying to leave the UK. Getting through

security can be a chore with all the kit. The

kitbag helps though. Keeps everything

in one place. Easy to keep hold of, and

show people if necessary especially when

you're trying to get insulin and needles

though security."

As far as insulin is concerned,

Calladine uses a HumaPen as it does

½ measure doses. He says, "I've had

it about eight years and I really love it. It

really suits me as it means I can do very

subtle corrective doses."

Looking to the future, Calladine enjoys

his job but would be happy if a cure was

found, though he admits, "If there was a

cure for Type 1 tomorrow, I think it would

be almost as big a culture shock as being

diagnosed in the first place. You get so

used to all the paraphernalia and looking

at food so differently, and the diabetes

community is amazing to be a part of. But

still, a cure would be cool! I'm sure DRWF

would continue in some form of that

happened, perhaps supporting people

with Type 2 diabetes."
