Kev Winchcombe, Blogger

Kev enjoys surfing, cycling and backpacking around India, but above everything he is proud to call himself a Diabetes Dad. His daughter Amy was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in 2010, aged 10. Kev is a blogger (Circles of Blue), an active member of the Diabetes Online Community and a founding member for QiC finalists T1Resources and Sugarbuddies.

Through his cycling Kev has raised thousands for Type 1 charities, this year’s challenge being leading 12 Diabetes Dads from London to Paris. In 2015 Kev became involved with the DIY medical tech Nightscout & #WeAreNotWaiting community after building a device to read Dexcom G4 data. Kev and Amy have gone on to give many WeAreNotWaiting presentations to doctors, professors, HCPs, charities, national conferences and education days. In 2018 Kev was proud to present at the T1D Rise of the Machines event. Amy is now using a DIY closed-loop artificial pancreas.
