Back to Kids' Voices Diego
Hi, my name is Diego. I am six years old and a have had diabetes since 1996, when I only had 3 years old. My parents were sad for this news, but by the way it's quite reasonable. At these moment I feel happy because though the diabetes is a different and serious condition for a child of my age, I try to feel good against all of circumstances. I study my last year in preschool and in the afternoon practice swim and karate. In the photo you can see me when I went to a competition in karate and achieved the third place in kata. It was in past december.

If you are interested in contacting my mommy feel free to do it by the wonder of internet. It's interesting be in contact with other parents who have diabetic children, especially if you live here in Venezuela, but it doesn't matter if you live in another part of the world.
