Are you a newly diagnosed Type 1 Diabetic? Are you the mom or caregiver of a newly diagnosed Type 1 diabetic child? Are you starting over with your T1D management? Then you are in the right place! This is episode SEVEN in a 10 week series for the newly diagnosed.

The seventh episode in the Newly Diagnosed Series is all about MDI (multiple daily injections) vs pumping vs DIY looping. Rachel and I discuss what they are and the many options out there. This one is terminology heavy and it may seem very unfamiliar. Scroll down to the bottom to see a list of links to the different pump companies to learn more as well as a link to the DIY Loop website. 

Joining me again and for the entire 10 week series is Registered Nurse and Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist (CDCES), Rachel Halverson. Rachel is also a T1D herself and has been living with Type 1 for 23 years now.  What's more, she has her very own online coaching business called Give Me Some Sugar where she primarily helps women manage their diabetes. In other words, she a super-human, hard-working lady! Please see below so you can know where to find Rachel and get in contact with her if you'd like!

A diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes is overwhelming to say the very least. The beginning of the journey with T1D is hard, emotional, scary and HEAVY. That's why I wanted to complete this series to help encourage and equip those families who are now facing this new life with T1D. Enjoy!
