We understand it can be extremely worrying if you have Type 1 diabetes and are having to self-isolate. So if you need any specific advice about Coronavirus (COVID19) we recommend you visit the Diabetes UK website https://www.diabetes.org.uk/about_us/news/coronavirus. This page is updated regularly.
Additionally, if you would like to take the opportunity to learn more about your diabetes whilst at home, why not try BERTIE Online . BERTIE Online is a free diabetes education course for people with Type 1 diabetes that has lots of useful information to help you understand and manage insulin doses compared to carbohydrate intake and live life on a day to day basis. It’s easy to do on your phone, tablet or PC.
It is important to note that BERTIE Online is not a substitute for group education and you should still look to attend a BERTIE or DAFNE programme when possible.
