Effective diabetes management in people newly diagnosed with diabetes, especially adolescents, remains low, causing co-morbidities and even mortality. The main reason is insufficient knowledge about self-management. Our project aims to foster proper diabetes management for people newly diagnosed, especially those with type 1 diabetes, through education on self-management strategies. We plan to educate adolescents on the basics of self-management through follow-up text messages. The goal is better diabetes management and quality of life.
