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.

  3. Prevention and treatment of this disease involve maintaining a healthy diet, regular physical exercise, a normal body weight, and avoiding use of tobacco. Control of blood pressure and maintaining proper foot care are important for people with the disease. Need to know more about diabetes disease
