A new diagnosis of type 1 diabetes (T1D) can spark a range of reactions, including anger, sadness, and guilt. Whatever your feelings, they are normal, and you are not alone. Whether you have T1D yourself, or are the parent or loved one of a person with type 1 diabetes, it takes time to adapt to the day-to-day demands of the disease. But treatment options are improving all the time, and type 1 diabetes will not prevent you or your loved one from living a full and active life. With medical and emotional support, people with T1D and their families learn to cope with, and even thrive in spite of, the demands that the disease imposes. Until there is a cure, we want to provide information that will help you cope with the burdens T1D imposes, take advantage of help that is available right now, and keep you and your loved ones as strong and healthy as possible.
