Children with Diabetes
Children with Diabetes is a website dedicated to supporting children and their families with all things associated with diabetes. Among other features, it includes a superb Question and Answer section.
American Diabetes Association
The Americal Diabetes Association is the equivalent of Diabetes UK but it is sometimes useful to compare and contrast their materials. Be aware though that the USA uses mg/dl rather than mmol/L for blood sugars (multiply mmol/L by 18 to convert)
Runsweet is a website dedicated to providing up to date and accurate information about diabetes in sport.
Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation

Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) exists to find the cure for type 1 diabetes and its complications, and is the world's leading charitable funder of type 1 diabetes research. It was founded by a small group of parents of children with type 1 diabetes who recognised that insulin injections are not the cure for this life threatening and life-long condition.

Links are provided to the main JDRF site and also to the excellent T1 site which is designed for young people themselves.
