Top Tips to Help Manage Your BG

Always try to give Insulin 15 minutes before food if a BG reading is above 4 mmol/L

Stop! Think! Act!

What is the BG reading telling you?  Is a correction needed?

Exercise can be tricky, but if managed well, it will help your BG levels

Below are films based on ‘The Goals of Diabetes’ structured education programme for children, young people and their families living with Type 1 Diabetes.  These films show Sophie managing her Diabetes with the support of her Mum

More films with different scenarios will appear over the coming months… Enjoy!

Please remember, these filmed scenarios are all individual and are designed to be used as examples of real families managing their Type 1 Diabetes. They are intended to be used as a complementary resource and therefore you will need to contact your own Diabetes team for any specific medical advice.
