Online support for patients with Type 1 Diabetes

New online support site for people with Type 1 diabetes

 

A new online resource for people with a new diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes is now live.

 

It can be hard for those newly diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes to know which websites to trust, so NHS England has made it easier by collecting all the useful NHS-trusted links in one place on the nhs.uk website. The new pages will help people with Type 1 diabetes to gain the knowledge and confidence to manage their condition. The site has been developed with NHS Digital, Diabetes UK and people living with Type 1 diabetes.

 

The site provides links to practical help on injecting insulin and checking blood glucose levels – as well as useful advice around living with the condition.

 

Healthcare professionals are being encouraged to refer newly diagnosed patients, their parents and carers to the site as a one stop shop for Type 1 diabetes support. See the new pages at the following link https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/type-1-diabetes/
