Description is a website that developed out of some research on transition of teens from the adolescent diabetes clinic to the young adults’ diabetes clinic. Although the website is connected to Capital & Coast District Health Board in the greater Wellington region, it has generic diabetes specific information on it for any young person to access. It is suitable for their friends, partners and parents if they want to understand what type 1 diabetes is, how to support someone and understand how many things a young person with diabetes is actually juggling!

In 2016 Waitemata DHB joined the diabeteslive website with specific information on their services and they will be contributing to the website content from now on.
