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. NHS England has made it easier by collecting all the useful NHS-trusted links in one place on the NHS (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 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.
Also for people with type 2 diabetes.
