My Diabetes Kit Jerry Gore mountaineer

LIVINGLIVING

cereal bars with me. I carry them on

climbs and use them all the time.

Any advice for everyone else?

I don't climb solo any more, just in case, I

have my own kids to think of, and also the

kids in the charity Action4Diabetics. There

are now 150 of them and I want 500 on

the programme by 2020 so I can't take

huge risks anymore.

My catchphrase is 'diabetes is NOT an

excuse'. We all make excuses sometimes,

but don't let diabetes be your excuse.

For most diabetics, if you want to do

something, you can. Don't let it stop you

from living a full life. Exercise is a secret we

can all share. It can help with your diabetes

control. You will have a few hypos, but your

body gets used to it and you have fewer

hypos, you know how to handle it. I want

every diabetic to live a long, fulfilled life.

If there's one piece of advice I would like

to pass on its to find other diabetics and

talk to them. You learn a lot from anyone

else you get much more support and

confidence by talking to other people who

have lived with it a while."

testing his own limits and the limits of his blood testing kit.
