Sophie McEvoyWhen I was first diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, I felt very overwhelmed. I was given a lot of information to take in, with various leaflets, which after suffering a DKA felt very overwhelming. This pack puts the information all in one place, and is a great go to source. I particularly liked the section on common misconceptions and how not get offended by what people say! A really informative pack. The folder is great, and I keep all my type 1 information in there
