Welcome

If your child is diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, they’ll be looked after by our children’s diabetes care team until they’re around 17 or 18. The care team will help with the things needed to manage your child’s type 1 diabetes, such as injecting insulin, testing blood glucose levels, and diet. They can also give advice on school or nursery, and talk to your child’s teachers and carers.
