Type 1 diabetes is most often diagnosed in children, teens, and young adults, and now more kids are developing type 2 diabetes. No matter the type of diabetes, good management is important in order to avoid or delay related health complications. And while type 1 diabetes can’t yet be prevented, type 2 diabetes can be, especially with family support.
To help manage your child’s diabetes at school, please make sure to obtain current Diabetes Management Plan orders from your child's Endocrinologist prior to each school year and discuss with the School Nurse. We will put a plan in place to share with important staff members at school.
