Young people and their families can learn about managing Type 1 diabetes at Digibete, a video platform and social enterprise in partnership with the Diabetes Team at Leeds Children’s Hospital.
Content is carefully created to cater to specific age ranges to help people get the best and relevant information. It is split into sections for kids, teens, parents and family, teachers and healthcare professionals.
There is now also a dedicated section with 10 essential videos for those newly diagnosed with T1D. Introduced by Dr James Yong, the topics covered include films on injecting technique, visiting diabetes clinic, healthy eating and how to work out a correction dose.
