Type I Diabetes

  1. 0
    Our 6 yo grandson has been diagnosed with diabetes. Can someone recommend a book to help me help this family with their adjustment? My son-in-law also was dx at about the same age so it is not unexpected but still scary and I need to educate myself as well as help them. Thanks.

    Have you asked your grandson's parents if their physician or diabetes educator recommended any materials? Have you tried looking at the Juvenile Diabetes Research website for information? They have tons of information for patients, parents and family members about newly diagnosed type one diabetes. http://www.jdrf.org/index.cfm?page_id=103432
