X Factor finals 2011: Amelia Lily fears her daily battle with diabetes could leave her blind

FAVOURITE Amelia Lily has told of her daily battle with diabetes and revealed the stress of the show could make her condition worse.

Amelia, who replaced shamed Frankie ­Cocozza, has to give herself four insulin injections a day to control the potentially deadly disease.

Amelia, 17, said: “I’ve had the ­condition for about 14 years. I have to be careful with my blood-sugar levels and the adrenaline of a live show uses up a lot of energy.

“There’s a risk something could happen on stage, but I can usually tell if something’s wrong and if I start shaking I’ll have chocolate.

“It’s all about knowing your symptoms and being on the ball.”

She added: "It is serious. If I have continuous high bloods for years, then you can go blind.

"Not a lot of people know what I am, but I would like to get it out and I'd like to help people, especially children, and show that you can still get on stage and perform."
