Fifty Years

of Malfunction

Grant's Fundraising Book

"Fifty Years of Malfunction" is an anecdotal journey through life, from the point of view of a former Type 1 diabetic. The book aims to give sufferers, carers and interested readers a clearer understanding of many aspects of the condition often overlooked, especially by the newly diagnosed. Because diabetes affects every part of the body, there is plenty of both comic and serious medical drama, and a cast of eccentric characters.

Grant Vicat was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at 11 months old, and has first hand experience of the various complications and the evolving treatment of the condition.

All profits from the book will go to Addenbrooke's Hospital Transplant Department, who gave Grant a replacement kidney and pancreas in 2013. The book costs £10, (including p&p within the UK). Please contact him on to buy a copy or for more information.
