Renza Scibilia and Chris Aldred have diabetes, and their introduction to the idea of complications arising from the condition were terrifying.

Because of this early experience, and Chris’s later development of complications, they have campaigned to make doctors really think about the way in which they talk about complications with patients. Challenging the use of “non-compliant” and other stigmatising language.

Chris has also documented his experience of developing an ulcer, and having it successfully treated, on social media, to open up the conversation and make us all #talkaboutcomplications.
