Were you recently diagnosed with type 1 diabetes? If so, you’ve come to the right spot.

why us

We’re here to support you as you adjust to life with T1D.

We know that your head is probably spinning from this sudden change, but you can take a deep breath now, because you have found a great starting place as you embark on your T1D journey. There will likely be some ups and downs as you navigate changes in your body and grieve the simplicity of eating popcorn on the couch without counting carbs or giving insulin…AND we promise it doesn’t have to be this hard forever. If you feel lost, frustrated, stressed, or alone, we are here to help you get grounded again. We want to show you the way back to yourself.

Virtual newly diagnosed goodie bag.

To help you feel less overwhelmed, we’ve created a virtual 3-part goodie bag for you with resources we wish we had early on in our diagnosis.

Inside you’ll find a PDF guide with things you likely won’t learn from your doctor, a personal video from T1D members of the Risely Team, and a 10 minute guided meditation from our founder, Lauren Bongiorno.
