Managing Type 1 Diabetes Together

 

Who are we

Believe the hypo has been created to tackle the often confusing and contradictory world of Type 1 Diabetes. We break down each factor affecting the life of a diabetic and how to best manage them, whilst also offering strategies to minimise the impact of diabetes on your life.

Diabetes is very complex, however, its management is typically strikingly simple, and can be most easily broken down into 3 parts:

  1. ​What causes blood glucose fluctuations

  2. How do we minimise these fluctuations

  3. How do we utilise modern medicine and technology to assist us 

The goal is to be as healthy as possible, minimise the chance of diabetic complications and not allow diabetes to control your life. 

So let's take a look at the biggest factors impacting diabetes.
