Diabetes Resources

At first, diabetes can seem like too much to handle. It affects so many parts of life—what and when to eat, for example. And when your child has diabetes, you have to learn about a lot of things, such as insulin shots and testing your blood and urine.

Learning to live with diabetes can be a challenge. When your child is first diagnosed, you may have questions, concerns and fears. But although diabetes is a serious, life-long condition, there are millions of people with diabetes who live happy, normal lives.
