A GUIDE FOR NEWLY DIAGNOSED ADULTS In 2011, I adapted, edited and financed an Irish version of the Australian booklet "Type 1 Diabetes Starter Kit; A Guide for Adults with Type 1", created by the Type 1 Diabetes Network.

Approximately 5,000 copies were distributed and it’s available to download on Diabetes Ireland’s website.

I took on this project because I remembered what it was like when I was told I had type 1 diabetes in the hospital. I was a little stunned! When I read the Starter Kit, I wished I had a book like this to get me started on where to go for more information when I was ready for it. This book helps newly diagnosed patients do that.
