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. The new pages will help people with Type 1 diabetes to gain the knowledge and confidence to manage their condition.
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 www.nhs.uk/conditions/type-1-diabetes/
