TYLER TYPE 1 DIABETES FOUNDATION
Target demographics: Children and Families living with Type 1 Diabetes.
Geographic areas served: Tyler and East Texas (90 miles from Dallas, TX)
Understanding the relationship between carbohydrates and insulin is imperative to the life of a person with Type 1 Diabetes. That is why we also offer nutrition and lifestyle education and support groups. Through this, we hope to empower those who are insulin dependent to make healthy choices every day. This will dramatically decrease the chances of complications in the years to come.
