International Travel: making contact with other Type I diabetics

We spend the summers in Switzerland and I have found it difficult to find other families dealing with Type I diabetes. I would like to find some other kids dealing with the same issues as my son. Any suggestions?

Hi Hania,

If you spend summers in Switzerland, I expect you may know German, so take a look at the Swiss Diabetes Association web They may be able to point you to regional organizations that support type 1 kids and even type 1 related camps and activities. Even if you don't speak the language, I expect you will find someone who speaks English to help.


Have you tried the International Diabetes Federation website?
