Everyday Wisdom Kit

New to Type 1 Diabetes? Order your Everyday Wisdom ™ Kit today!

The Everyday Wisdom Kit is a free tool to help children and families of children newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes live with diabetes every day. 

We know a diagnosis of type 1 diabetes can be tough for any family. Everyday moments can become more of a challenge. The Everyday Wisdom Kit helps families plan for those everyday moments and events such as birthday parties, playing sports, and driving.

The Kit comes in a reusable lunch bag and includes:

  • A guide for parents
  • A guide for the child with diabetes
  • A guide for the teen with diabetes
  • A guide for the sibling
  • An interactive card game for the whole family
  • A Safe Diabetes Sitter Guide
  • A dog tag to personalize as a medical ID necklace
  • Emergency Contact Information refrigerator magnet
  • Diabetes Dictionary
  • Information about the American Diabetes Association’s Diabetes Camp and Safe at School® programs.

While this kit cannot replace the need to see a health care professional, we hope it will help you better understand what to expect with type 1 diabetes.

The Everyday Wisdom Kit is available to families for free thanks to an educational grant from Lilly.
