JDRF Bag of Hope
As you navigate the challenging period of adjustment to life with T1D, you can find helpful information and support through the JDRF Bag of Hope.
JDRF T1D Care Kit
JDRF T1D Care Kit is a free resource providing information and tools to educate, support and inspire newly diagnosed adults with T1D.
JDRF T1D Connections Program
This program matches individuals and families with others who have lived with T1D for years. JDRF mentors are the voices of experience and hope for those learning to manage their T1D or transitioning into a new stage of life with the disease.
JDRF T1D toolkits are comprehensive guides to T1D at different phases of life, including school, adulthood and pregnancy. Find the right toolkit for you and request a copy.
After the time of diagnosis, some people experience a “honeymoon phase” in which their existing beta cells still function and the body is still able to produce its own insulin.
