Managing diabetes

Young people

Youth transition program

An initiative supporting young people with type 1 diabetes as they move to adulthood, helping them understand the importance of managing their health to minimise the risk of complications. 


The Youth Transition program is designed to provide follow up and communication to help children and their parents/carers in planning their transition from paediatric to adult care, including a youth transition pack (information), frequent communication and access to the MyD website, developed specifically for people aged between 16-25. 


Moving On Up

Becoming an adult brings all kinds of new responsibilities. For young people with type 1 diabetes this also includes learning to live well with their diabetes. 


Moving On Up is a resource designed specifically for young people with type 1 diabetes and their parents or guardians, about the transition from paediatric to adult health care services.


Focusing on the challenges and opportunities that young people face as they become young adults this booklet covers how they can live well with their diabetes through this time, the responsibilities they have for their own diabetes care and the support they can expect to receive.


Moving On Up can be downloaded from the Young People page on the NDSS website
