Children, diabetes and school

If you have Type 1 diabetes and attend school, it is important to make sure that your school is aware of your condition and that you have a plan in place to manage it. This plan should include having access to snacks and drinks to manage your blood sugar levels, having a designated area to test your blood sugar, and having a plan for managing any low or high blood sugar episodes. It is also important to have a trusted adult at school who can help you manage your diabetes if needed. Finally, make sure to talk to your doctor about any special accommodations you may need to help you manage your diabetes while at school. Additionally, it is important to stay up to date on your diabetes management and to keep your doctor informed of any changes in your condition.
