Type 1 Diabetes

Please note: This page is merely to guide to offer help to students with Type 1 diabetes that want to study abroad in Copenhagen – it does in no way constitute medical advice. DIS is not responsible for students acting on information on this page or that on linked external resources. Please consult a professional doctor with any medical questions.

Studying abroad with Type 1 Diabetes can be a tough task and involve a large amount of guess work in terms of what food contains. This means as a student, you must be extra vigilant and monitor your blood sugar levels closely. It is fully possible to live and study in Copenhagen with Type 1 diabetes and DIS Copenhagen has many students who cope with this challenge every semester.
