Hi every one,
I was substitute teaching today and after talking to the class about diabetes (I am a type 1) and demonstrating how I check my blood sugar a student approached me and told me that she too is a type 1 diabetic and she confided that no one knows about it (meaning the teachers and students)! I was shocked!
This means that she doesn't check her blood sugars all day during school and eats lunch with out administering insulin (fortunately she said she does check her blood sugar and give herself insulin in the morning and at night)!
Luckily I was able to speak with her teacher about it so hopefully she will be getting proper care in school from here on in but what I have been trying to do is find some websites that are geared toward children with diabetes. Websites that are easy to navigate and fun to use so that I could pass them onto her teacher.
I also have a book for her that should be helpful but if any one knows of any websites that a child in third grade would enjoy I think it would be really helpful for her and her family!
