Flex-IT Workshop

It doesn't matter if you have been type 1 for 2 months, 2 years or 20 years - we all can feel a bit lost sometimes. Educating yourself about type 1 is one of the most empowering ways to feel in control of your diabetes, and the Flex-IT workshop is a great way to refresh your knowledge and build your confidence.

"Just a quick note to thank you for all the information you have shared during my recent two-day Flex-IT workshop. The course was amazing, my wife (who was also welcomed to attend) and I have learned so much. I now have the information and tools required to manage my diabetes, I can confidently carb count and manage my insulin with the utmost of confidence. No more guessing. I would thoroughly recommend anyone enduring diabetes to take this course, it is without a doubt life-changing.  Many thanks, I will surely be staying in touch."

"From the view of someone with type 1 diabetes (me), the main benefit of this workshop is clear: it makes your life better. The workshop shows you what to do/not to do, and how to do it EASILY. The trainers were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The workshop keeps you (and your loved ones) aware of the risks of diabetes, it shows you how to manage these risks using best practice, and it keeps you up to date with the new technologies available to make your life easier, better, and longer. In a nutshell, the FlexIT workshop is a must to every person with diabetes and their loved ones and it should be refreshed every 2 or 3 years. Thank you for such a great experience."

"I thought I knew everything there was to know about counting carbohydrates, but I never understood the importance of being accurate. The FlexIT workshop taught me how to be a better type 1 diabetic. From revisiting the basics to understanding how your body responds to diet changes, exercise and new technology, the Flex-IT workshop covered it all. Being in a group environment, and taking along a support person, was an integral part of the 2-day workshop. Supporting and learning with others who experience the life of a type 1 diabetic made the workshop valuable. I found the FlexIT workshop eye-opening, life-changing and highly implementable."
