Our Story

Who We Are

We are a community of individuals dedicated to battling against T1D

Welcome to our community, a gathering of individuals united in the battle against Type 1 Diabetes (T1D). Our network consists of people who themselves have been diagnosed with T1D or are family members of those living with this condition.

We recognize that T1D is significantly under-diagnosed and frequently misdiagnosed as Type 2 Diabetes (T2D), especially among adults. Our mission revolves around addressing these critical issues. At the core of our purpose lies the firm belief that T1D is not solely a childhood ailment, but a condition that can affect individuals of all ages. Our primary objective is to dispel the misconception that T1D is exclusive to children, raising awareness of its prevalence among adults.

In our pursuit of fostering a comprehensive understanding of T1D, we offer a wealth of information, stories, and resources. By sharing personal narratives and experiences, we aim to empower those living with T1D, providing them with the knowledge and support necessary to navigate life with the condition. Our commitment extends further, creating a sense of community among T1D patients. We aim to cultivate an environment where shared experiences and mutual understanding thrive, bolstering a support network that plays a crucial role in each member’s journey.

Our mission is threefold:

Raise Awareness: We strive to challenge the common misconception that T1D is confined to childhood. Through education and advocacy, we illuminate the prevalence of adult-onset T1D, dispelling myths and encouraging early and accurate diagnoses.

Empowerment: Armed with valuable insights and resources, we equip individuals with T1D and their families with the tools they need to lead fulfilling lives. Our aim is to empower them to manage their condition effectively, embracing every facet of life.

Foster Community: We create a sense of belonging and connection, uniting T1D patients and their loved ones in a supportive community. By sharing triumphs, struggles, and wisdom, we foster an environment of understanding and empathy.

Join us in our mission to redefine the narrative around Type 1 Diabetes. Together, we can drive positive change, raise awareness, and empower those affected by T1D to lead their best lives.
