Adults

As an adult being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes can affect many aspects of your life – whether you study, work, travel, play sport, are starting a family or preparing for retirement. And although this change in lifestyle can feel overwhelming at times, working closely with your diabetes healthcare team will make it easier to live your life!

Managing your diabetes means finding a balance between healthy eating, regular exercise and treatment. Your healthcare team is there to support you – and the most important person in the team is you! Taking responsibility for all aspects of your diabetes will empower you and help you to feel more confident about managing your diabetes effectively.
