What people say about Cyber Carbs
Victoria, type 1
As a person living with type 1 and having completed a nutrition degree, I believe that the different sections of this are a great general knowledge tool for people living type 1 and their support people.
Christine, type 1 mum
I am a carb counting guru now! As someone who hates maths, I found this easy to follow and calculate. The course is 100% awesome and I would draw on this information time and time again.
Lauren, Diabetes Educator
Fantastic learning program. It delivered very important information in a way that was easy to understand with guidance, explanations and examples to use. I’ve learnt valuable skills in how to correctly count carbohydrates and apply that knowledge into accurate insulin dosing. Amazing lessons learned.
It has given me a deeper understanding of T1D and taught me the importance of carb counting. This will help me better support my friend with type 1 when she comes over for dinner.
Blake, type 1
I enjoyed the whole experience. The videos were super helpful and the handouts were a great resource to follow with.
Jocelyn, type 1 mum
Absolutely fabulous! A concise but thorough course. This course would be an excellent overview for a newly diagnosed family as well as those needing a refresher! I loved learning little tricks too!
