Education sessions designed for people who are managing their type 1 diabetes on basal bolus insulin therapy

What can we do for you?

We offer a two-day group education program that teaches participants how to best match insulin requirements to their food and lifestyle for a more flexible approach to diabetes management.

Each small group program is presented by an experienced Diabetes Educator and Dietitian. Practical advice and personalised feedback is provided.

Topics include:

  • Insulin adjustment for food and physical activity.
  • Carbohydrate counting, including practical activities.
  • Diabetes health targets and checks.
  • Hypoglycaemia, hyperglycaemia and sick day management.

Who can attend?

FlexIT is designed for people with type 1 diabetes who are managing on basal bolus insulin therapy.
