Hi, I am Jette and I live in Hannover, Germany. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the beginning of October 2023. In the first days of my treatment at the Children's Hospital AUF DER BULT I was offered the opportunity to participate in the MELD-ATG trial. Despite feeling initially uncertain due many unanswered questions, I decided to participate after consulting my parents, which helped me a lot through this phase and the study team. I believe that the study offers me the opportunity to ensure that my own insulin production works for a longer time and that I can help to stop type 1 diabetes at some point in the future. As one of the last participants of the MELD-ATG trial, my treatment started on November 14th, World Diabetes Day.
