World Diabetes Day 2019: what Kaleido means to me.

World Diabetes Day 2019: what Kaleido means to me.

You're nine years old. The pediatrician tells you that you’ll spend the rest of your life dealing with a nasty, unfair disease called ‘Type 1 diabetes mellitus’. Great news – not. In hindsight, I should have just eaten the whole pack of biscuits there and then. Mainly because they didn't serve anything decent in the next week in hospital. Except for the...

My journey from Dia-BAD to Diabadass!

My journey from Dia-BAD to Diabadass!

I was diagnosed with type one diabetes at the age of 6, way back in 1997. Most people make the assumption that because I was diagnosed so young that over the years I've become 'used' to living with diabetes but this couldn’t be any further from the truth.

What a welcome to Kaleido!

I just returned from spending the past week in Barcelona at the EASD conference. And I can honestly say I couldn’t be working with a nicer group of people. Everyone here just seems to get it. We deal with diabetes all day every day, so why not make it positive, colourful and ultimately - happy? As a new company, we have the opportunity to define things from day...

Kaleido wedding special: and so it begins….

Leading up to Friday 6th September 2019, I felt such excitement and a smidgen of apprehension all at the same time. I’d developed such high expectations of what the Kaleido could do for me. Aside from the ability to control the pump remotely (a big win on the wedding dress front), I hoped this teeny tiny piece of colourful technology would help me overcome many of...
