The Family Centre's Carb Conscious Cookbook is full of delicious recipes aimed at reducing the carbohydrate load of the meal, in particular processed and grain-based ingredients. We know carbs are sometimes tough to tackle for people living with type 1, but we also get that reducing carbohydrate for the whole family may not always be feasible.   Adapting higher-carb meals into lower carb options is always fun, but have you every considered doing it the other way around?   We have chosen one of our favourite winter dinner recipes from our very own Carb Conscious Cookbook and want t ..read more

Real life with type 1: An awkward relationship with carbs

There's an elephant in the room (for those of you familiar with the history of the Family Centre, her name is Elly :)) It's the role of food and carbohydrate intake in type 1 diabetes. I must have written this blog post over twenty times trying to get it right. Because somehow, for reasons that will forever elude me, we don't like to talk about food's role in managing type 1. In fact, the Family Centre has copped heavy criticism over its lifetime for daring to talk about it. It's something I wear as a badge of pride. It's just another area where we're willing to talk about it because we liv ..read more

Thanks to funding from Telethon, we're providing 100 complimentary HbA1c tests to WA kids! This is something that I'm personally very excited to announce. Although the HbA1c test is just one small part of diabetes management, it's a test that is associated with so much fear and judgement. I myself always feel like I'm getting my report card...! But coming to the Family Centre - your home away from home - you can get your results in a completely judgement free zone. It's an excuse to come visit us, spend some time with people who "get it" and have the kids enjoy our amazing Centre (playgroun ..read more

Support to thrive while living with Type 1 Diabetes, thanks to new education program. July 10, 2023, Perth: “I wish I knew that” is a phrase heard far too often from people living with type 1 diabetes. An autoimmune disease, type 1 can strike anyone, at any time. And there is no cure. Living with type 1 is akin to a full-time job, yet the condition is not well understood by the public – often being confused with far more common type 2 diabetes. But they are entirely different diseases. And over 13,000 West Australians live with type 1; and will do every day for the rest of their lives. Yet des ..read more
