Im doing an assignment on type 1 diabetes and need to write about therapies and treatments. Also what happens when you are diagnosed do you have a diabetes nurse to go to and talk to about insulin and diet regimes. If so how often do you see them?If anyone can help give me an insight into how you cope with diabetes i would appreciate it. Thanks rep to all helpers.

Husband is type 1 :-( and it can be hell at times. He was diagnosed about 7 years ago when he lived in USA, and to be honest ever since he has been back here the service you get from the NHS leaves a lot to be desired.

There is a fantastic site at http://www.diabetes.co.uk/ with a great forum with a huge number of very knowledgeable people on there - any questions you have they will be sure to have the answers !!

For OH it's actually quite rare for him to see a diabetes nurse - he's been rushed into hospital with complications twice in the last 2 years, and each time you see someone shortly after you leave but then never hear anything from them again unless you specifically ring them up and hassle them. There's virtually no education - the info we have has been mostly found by me constantly questioning them and refusing to be brushed off. I know some health trusts are more pro-active but ours are pretty useless :-(.

If there's anything you want to ask just let me know and I'll help from my point of view if I can :-)

Have found the information booklet that the diabetic nurse gave us when the child with diabetes returned to school. Gives flow charts of what steps to take if his BM is above or below certain levels. A basic introduction to dibetes.1. Signs and symptoms of a hypo and hyper etc. Can copy and send it if you think it will be any help.

thanks for all your help. do they offer any alternative therapies/treatments (other then regular insulin) or anyone tried anything?
