The League of DiAthletes:

Connecting the world as 1, in living with type 1. 

  • An action league of ‘DiAdvocates’ living with type 1 diabetes
  • A Global Alliance of connected type 1 diabetes organisations from around the world

LOD connects, trains and supports a team of type 1 diabetes patient advocates to innovate grassroots workshops and engage in diabetes educational activities around the world. We are active with a collaboration of allied diabetes organisations and local DiAdvocates across multiple countries to reach local communities within 5 global “LOD Zones” Africa, America, Asia, Europe, Oceania.


In ‘connecting the world as 1 in living with type 1′ the League operates with a biennial structure. This entails hosting a DiAdvocates Training Delegation every ‘even year’ where the DiAdvocates come together to develop their ‘LOD project’ plans and grow professionally as advocates; and for every ‘odd calendar year,’ the League operates a Global Challenge where DiAdvocates unite to empower local diabetes communities within a country of our Global Alliance, with a teamed endurance challenge taking place & a series of diabetes community engaging activities.

Continuously, each year, the DiAdvocates produce LOD Projects – engaging & practical techniques of improving type 1 diabetes education – to support their home-based communities. Furthermore LOD’s network continues to diversely share type 1 diabetes tips, experiences and information through LOD’s online media campaigns & engagement.
