Back to School with Diabetes

It's almost that time of year again. The kiddos are getting ready to head back to school and start a new year. It's always a busy time with two kids Type 1 diabetes. There are supplies to be gathered, bags to be put together, documents to be prepared and meetings to schedule.

With so much on your plate as a parent of a child(ren) with Type 1 you may be overwhelmed with where to start. But I want to let you know you are not alone. In fact, the website I'm working for has put together a great article on everything you need to know to get ready for school this year.

If you are newly diagnosed this is a great starting point. Please check it out here at The Diabetes Council and let me know what you think. If we forgot anything, let me know.


  1. Great advice.

    I referred your blog to the blog page for the week of August 8, 2016.

    1. Hi Rick! Thank you for the referral. I definitely appreciate it.

  2. Good luck to Clifford, Maggie and the rest of the gang. Have a great school year!!!

  3. Thank you Richard, Maggie's off to Kindergarten and Clifford to 7th. With kiddos in K, 3,4,5,6,7 it should make for an interesting year.
