A word of support for newly diagnosed families
Getting diagnosed with type 1 diabetes is lifechanging, you have to learn to manage your insulin with what you eat and your specific insulin plan, therefore we wish to extend our support and share a message for those diagnosed and their parents.
We at HEAL.med provide education and training to Health Care Professionals to improve patient learning and treatment, primarily through the Deapp app and it's associated props.
Despite the serious nature of the condition, of note is that having type 1 diabetes should not prevent you doing any activities that you wish to do, you should still be able to make friends, do sports, dance or any number of other activities, you just need to manage your Insulin to balance for the activities you do and what you eat.
We'd also like to feature this article with a letter to newly diagnosed families on the website Diabetes Dad by Tom Karlya: http://diabetesdad.org/2021/04/30/dear-newly-diagnosed-family/
