The Type 1 Diabetes Network Starter Kit is the culmination of years of tips and contributions from people living with type 1 diabetes in Australia. This kit seeks to provide people newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes a sense of what life is actually like on a day-to-day basis, tackling the good and bad; the funny and frightening; the reality and the myths. We want you to know that you can still live the life you want to live!

This document is intended to complement the information provided by health care professionals, diabetes organisations and other sources.  It contains (almost) everything you need to know about life with type 1 diabetes, by people who live with type 1 diabetes!
