type 1 diabetes; or
permanent neonatal diabetes; or
undergone a pancreatectomy; or
cystic fibrosis-related diabetes; or
metabolic disease or epilepsy under the care of a paediatrician, neurologist or metabolic specialist.

For the avoidance of doubt patients who have previously received a funded meter, other than CareSens, are eligible for a funded CareSens meter.
