Online Edition of Helmsley-Funded Type 1 Diabetes Self-Care Manual Now Live

With Helmsley support, two leading experts on type 1 diabetes (T1D) assembled a comprehensive guide to thriving with this disease. The paperback was launched in November 2017 and is slated to be a go-to reference for patients as well as the parents and caregivers who are deeply committed to their care. It fills the need for an evidence-based and easy-to-read resource that includes the latest updates and tips for diabetes management. The free online edition makes the information available to more people with T1D and their families to help manage daily life with T1D.


The guide covers not only the basics of T1D care, but also nutrition and physical activity, mental health, considerations for specific age groups, the diabetes care team, and several other topics. People living with T1D from many different age groups share personal stories that are both helpful and inspiring throughout the guide.
