New to Type 1 Diabetes?
We know that hearing "you have type 1 diabetes" is tough for everyone in the family. We at the American Diabetes Association are here to support you, as you find your new normal.
Our Courage-Wisdom-Hope Kit for children and their families helps every kid feel smart, brave and ready to live a great life.
This free kit cannot replace the need to see your health care professional team, but it may help you fill in some blanks. Contents include:
- Parent Guide
- Kid's Interactive Guide
- Sibling Guide
- Drawstring "go" bag—sized for a meter, strips, glucose tablets, snack and other necessities
- Write-on emergency contacts magnet and pen
