Living with one or more chronic conditions affects your life in so many different ways. The only people who really understand what you're going through are those who have faced the same challenges for years.
With this in mind we've created Life Effects, an initiative shaped by patients, for patients. Together, we explore the latest science and thinking around your condition. Whether it's a new piece of research or a fresh look at triggers, we highlight straightforward, useful insights that are relevant to you.
We bring you tips and technologies to make things a little easier. It might be a new app to organize your appointments or life hacks to help you live better days. We pick the best of the bunch, road-tested by other patients.
And we share stories about the reality of living with chronic conditions. It might be the challenge of starting a new job or the struggle to get out of bed each day. We talk about what it's like with people who have actually been there.
