Hi, I’m Tim and I’m the founder and author of this blog ‘Diabettech’.


As the owner of this blog,  I am not and have not been compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own and do not represent that of any company or organisation that I work for or am involved with. But you probably worked that out. They have a habit of being a bit, well, honest.


If I claim or appear to be an expert on a certain topic or product or service area, apologies. That was unintentional. I’m simply going off the experiences I have with T1D and the technologies that I play with.


On any post where I’m being compensated, I’ll tell you, but let’s face it, that’s really a pipe dream, and highly unlikely! If I were to go so far as to endorse a product, it would only be something that I’d use. And if I do endorse a product, while I’ll try to be accurate about it, you should confirm any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation that I make with the manufacturer, provider or originator of the data. I could have made a mistake!


Nothing that I have written on this blog is medical advice and nor should it be taken that way. Anything that I have written has been from my own personal experience of living with Type 1 Diabetes. Any treatments, products and diabetes regimes that I use for my diabetes are through my own decision. If you have a medical query or emergency then please seek the help of a Health Care Professional.
