Type 1 diabetes blogs

There are dozens of great blogs out there written by people with type 1 diabetes.  It’s a terrific way to hear about people’s personal experiences and to feel connected with someone else going through similar things to you.  Here is a small sample to get you started.  If you’re a blogger or you’d like to recommend a favourite blog, contact us at info@t1dn.org.au!

Diabetogenic: https://diabetogenic.wordpress.com/

“Diabetogenic is a blog about real life with type 1 diabetes. I’m Renza Scibilia and I live in inner-Melbourne, Australia. I’ve lived with type 1 since 1998 and for the last fourteen years I’ve used an insulin pump. Most of the time, my robot parts also include a CGM. I work for a diabetes organisation.”


The Wanderlust Days: http://thewanderlustdays.com/

“My name is Carly and I’m a travel blogger based in Adelaide, Australia. I began blogging in June 2014 whilst traveling solo around the world. As well as being a traveler, I am also a Type 1 diabetic and have been for the past 25 years.

Prior to embarking on my first RTW solo adventure I struggled to find diabetic traveling information from others who had done something similar. After visiting more than 16 countries over 9 months, I discovered traveling with diabetes was not only achievable, but easier than I expected.”
