When Faced With a Diabetic Child

Prevention is better than cure, but having a child diagnosed with type 1 diabetes is totally out of our control. Parents want their children to be healthy and free of any sickness so it is normal to feel angry or scared for your son, but keep in mind that it is not the end of the world. You need to be strong for your kid and see the bigger picture. He is still the same child you carried and raised, he just needs extra care and attention.

Talk to his doctor and learn all the precaution and things you have to know regarding this condition. Learning how to inject insulin is imperative, and so is making sure that his blood glucose level is normal. A healthy diet and exercise is also helpful, many parents handle this situation every day and they are doing great, so should you.
