Tips for Parents Raising a Child With Diabetes


Your child’s school should be aware of your child’s special needs. They should be informed about their testing and treatment and how to properly act if your child gets too low or too high in sugar levels. You may ask your child's diabetes pediatrician or specialist nurse to help you and the school draw up the Individual Healthcare Plan. If you’re a parent with a diabetic child, you must seek a medical team’s guidance. This team consists of a pediatric endocrinologist, diabetes nurse educator, and dietitian. They can teach the right management skills to you and your family.
