I would think your doctor would be the one to set this up for you. They should give you all of the initial information and set you up to see a nutritionist about changing your eating habits. This assumes, of course, that you have health insurance and regularly see your doctor. Your doctor might referr you to an endocrinologist - especially since you are Type 1. Have you just been diagnosed?

You can also check with your country health services and research such classes and resources on line. Good luck.
