The development of the Type 1 Essentials program was led by people who live with type 1 diabetes day to day and know what it is really like to manage this challenging condition. With the help of a team of incredible health professionals, the team bring together everything they wish they knew when they were first diagnosed.
All the tips and tricks, all the words of wisdom they’ve picked up on the way. There’s no pretending type 1 diabetes isn’t tough here. Just real-world, practical advice paired with the best evidence-based clinical advice available.
We know that type 1 diabetes doesn’t change who you are. It shouldn’t stand in the way of the things you want to do in life. Whether that’s running an ultra-marathon, climbing the corporate ladder, spending more time with the kids or enjoying sunsets in Vanuatu, you need advice that works for you and your life.
In the Type 1 Essentials course you’ll find tools, tips and advice for conquering your goals while living with type 1. No “one size fits all” approach here, just real advice from people who have walked this path before you.
The Type 1 Essentials program was born through a remarkable collaboration between more than 20 pre-eminent clinicians with specialist knowledge of type 1 diabetes alongside a community of people with decades of experience living day to day with type 1 diabetes.
The course represents a unique blend of the latest evidence-based clinical advice and medical knowledge coupled with real-world, practical, down-to-earth experience of what it is like to live day-to-day with one of the most complex self-managed conditions on earth.
Overseen by a pre-eminent Clinical Advisory Committee chaired by Dr Joey Kaye, Head of Department of Diabetes and Endocrinology at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital, the Type 1 Essentials Program is the toolkit we all wish we had when we started on our own journeys with type 1.
