The Instagram Page That Is Showing The World What People With Type 1 Diabetes Are Really Made Of

If you’re involved in the Diabetes community, you’re probably aware of Beyond Type 1. But for those who aren’t, Beyond Type 1 is a non-profit organization raising funds, awareness, and education for Type 1 Diabetes.

What made them so well known? Well, it doesn’t hurt that Nick Jonas is one of the co-founders. But the real reason is their incredible Instagram. Every day we’re introduced to a new person with diabetes from all around the world, and they tell us how they are living beyond their diagnosis.

When I discovered their page, I was awe inspired. I went through almost every picture, reading about amazing things people are doing with Type 1 Diabetes. It is truly a wall of warriors, from toddlers to people who have lived with T1D for over 40 years.

There are many incredible things Beyond Type 1 does for the community, and this post is just touching the tip of the iceberg. But it was the first thing that introduced Beyond Type 1 to me, and it’s a great place to start and start to understand their message.

If you have Instagram, I highly recommend following them at @beyondtype1. If you don’t have Instagram, I highly recommend making an account, and checking them out. It is a beautiful community and a daily source of inspiration.

Below are some of my personal favorite pictures from their wall.
