Being diagnosed is a life-long Auto Immune Disease, and a new diagnosis can affect the whole family in different ways. 

T1F is dedicated to supporting the family living with Type 1 Diabetes. The sudden diagnosis of a child, partner, sibling or parent with Type 1 Diabetes comes as a huge shock to the whole family.


This is the part that most of us don't like thinking about - possible type 1 diabetes complications. Complications are associated with having higher than normal blood glucose levels over a long period of time.

Look after yourself by having the following regular health check ups:

  • HbA1c - every 3 months

  • Blood pressure - every doctor's visit

  • Cholesterol - every year

  • Eyes - every one to two years

  • Feet - every year

  • Kidneys - every year

  • Teeth and gums - regularly
