Hey guys! I'm looking for some tips on living and working in China as an expat with Type 1 Diabetes! I'd really like some help! :)

Hi all I am new here and live in Asia. Can read both Chinese and Japanese. Thx!

I am, also, not living in Asia and have joined this group to ask questions.

I'm working with Ayogo Health developing apps to help families and kids who struggle with Diabetes and we're trying to find out what the experience of a kid with T1D is at school.

Is there support from school staff? Nurses? Does family have to come to school to help out?

What about the social aspect? I've heard a lot about how having Diabetes can count against you when it comes to post-secondary education and employment, but what about with friends?

Apologies if I'm being nosy. The more we understand the challenges, the better we will be able to help families address them!

I apologize I am not living in Asia but I have several questions specific to traditional cultural practices (Chi Gung, Kara-te, etc., etc) of Japan, China particular to Type 1 Diabetes. I was hoping members could possible help ???

I do not read Japanese/Chinese so cannot read internet postings about diabetes research that might exist on these topic.
