Hannah Waterman shed 3 stone and lots of people said she'd gone too far. Little did they (or she) know she was actually suffering from a potentially fatal condition...

In February 2011, 24 weeks pregnant, Hannah Waterman was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. One of the symptoms of the disease is losing weight. It’s only now that Hannah can look back and see that her illness may have been a factor in her extreme weight loss.

‘Now I know my pancreas was slowly packing in and one of the symptoms is losing weight,’ she says. ‘I wish I had known it at the time – I could have told the world, “Back off – I’m ill.”‘
