Know your 4 T's

The main symptoms of diabetes in children are being explained to parents and carers in Carlisle as part of a nationwide campaign by Diabetes UK.

A new survey has found that nine out of ten parents are unaware of what symptoms to look out for in Type 1 diabetes- Toilet; Thirsty; Tired; and Thinner.

Children at Caldew Lea Primary School, will be wearing campaign t-shirts with the letter 'T' on them, in recognition of the symptoms.
