Adult Type 1 Toolkit

The FREE support and information toolkit for adults newly diagosed with type 1 diabetes


On the day of diagnosis my doctor gave me Straight to the Point. I read it cover-to-cover immediately. I can't overstate how helpful it was. The book is easy to understand, clear, and told me a great deal I needed to know about my new condition. Every newly diagnosed diabetic should receive a copy. A C, diagnosed age 33.


The tookit contains:

  • A handy type 1 reference folder to keep all the information and bits of paper that come with your new diagnosis.
  • JDRF information leaflets about living with type 1 diabetes.
  • A factsheet for your workplace
  • A handy pocket guide to give to friends, family or colleagues (visit the shop to order more)
  • A copy of JDRF’s Type 1 Discovery magazine
  • A free one-year subscription to Type 1 Discovery magazine, simply return the form to sign up
  • The pack also comes with a copy of Straight to the Point, a 170 page guide for adults living with type 1 diabetes. The book is a useful reference to help you keep on track and give you ideas for how to get the most out of life with type 1 diabetes.
  • A Hypo Information Pack with a FREE pack of Dextro tablets.
