Darren Leaver

darren-leaverI was diagnosed with diabetes around my second birthday at the Adelaide Children's Hospital. I remember my parents telling me how they were shown to inject using oranges.

My earliest memories were of watching as my needles were threaded with a thin metal wire and then boiled. After cooling they were placed in a sterile solution. They had huge gauges, like those used in veterinary practices.

I attended several camps held by Diabetes SA and it was good to see other children with diabetes behaving normally. Of course there were the morning injection schedules and urine testing to check sugar levels.

I now compete on my Arabian horses in endurance riding, travelling the Australian bush on horseback.
