The Lowdown is all about bringing people together and sharing personal stories about your hypos. We want to create a community, so no one feels alone.

This year we are focusing on hypos and mental health. That can mean how they affect your personal mental health or how you’ve felt about other people responding to your hypos.

Simply submit your story through a video or photo, holding a sign using one word how hypos make you feel.

Share your post on your social media account (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, etc.) using the hashtag #HyposHappen.

Plus, if you have an Instagram account and have your settings as public, we can share your story on this website.

Don’t have a social media account?

Not a problem. Simply send us a photo and one word which best describes how a hypo makes you feel by e-mailing thelowdown@diabetesaustralia.com.au and we will upload it on our website for you.

If you do have a social media account and wish to post your story yourself, just don’t forget to use the hashtag #HyposHappen.

The Lowdown to Christmas

Need some more motivation? This year has been tough so we are giving away three $250 Visa card vouchers to help you treat yourself and your loved ones this Christmas.

Every post using the hashtag #HyposHappen will go into the draw. Conditions apply.

What else can you do?

Post some of our campaign images on your social media or share our posts and tweets.
