The NHS Scotland has launched a new interactive website to help people manage their diabetes. The site called ‘my diabetes, my way’ was developed to help support people with diabetes and their families in Scotland.
The site allows people with diabetes to access their own clinical data online to monitor how their diabetes is affecting them and manage their condition more effectively. Users can also access treatment advice from pharmacists to help self-manage their diabetes. This progressive system is a world first for diabetes care.
The site also contains lots of leaflets, videos and information on diabetes to help people understand, manage and monitor their condition. Users can also find out more about their local diabetes services and how to get involved in local support groups.
The incidence of type 1 diabetes in Scotland is among the highest in Europe and JDRF welcome any system that can help people with type 1 manage their condition more effectively until a cure can be found.
