Knowing first-hand the intricacies of living with Type 1 Diabetes, the team at Touched by Type 1 created the D-Box – a starter kit providing important resources and supportive materials to help individuals with diabetes thrive.
If you, a child or a loved one has been recently diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, there is a lot of important information to digest and you will no doubt be making many updates to your daily life. At Touched by Type 1, as part of our mission, we support those with Type 1 Diabetes to live active and healthy lifestyles. At its core, proper type 1 diabetes management is composed of a handful of elements: blood glucose control and insulin management, exercise, nutrition and support. Knowing first-hand the intricacies of living with Type 1 Diabetes, the team at Touched by Type 1 has created the D-Box.
Our work is made possible by the generosity of our sponsors and community partners. Thank you to those who have donated items be included in our popular D Boxes: Diabetes Research Institute, A Tad Too Sweet, Dexcom, Glucose Revival, Arden’s Day Juicebox Podcast, Omnipod, Stay Put Medical, Genteel, Sugar Medical, TrialNet, InPen, Novo Nordisk, Transcend Foods, Diabetes Connections, Tandem Diabetes and Gvoke.
**At this time, the D-Box is only shipping across the U.S.A.
