If your child’s blood sugar gets too high, they’ll need to drink water, take an insulin shot, or exercise.
If they drop too low, they’ll need some fruit juice, hard candy, or glucose tablets.
Your child should have a kit with them at all times. It should include insulin and needles, contact numbers, extra batteries for a meter or pump, test strips and lancets, and a quick-acting source of glucose (like glucose tablets).
They should wear a medical ID at all times that lets people know they have type 1 diabetes.
