Because your child has
type 1 diabetes, he or she will experience high and
low blood sugar levels from time to time. High blood sugar usually develops
slowly over hours or days, so you can treat the symptoms before they become
severe and require medical attention. On the other hand, your child's blood
sugar level can drop to dangerously low levels in minutes.
