I just started today in a new school and I have my first diabetic student that is in 7th grade. He does carb counting and correction factors.
He came in before lunch chatted and then tested his blood sugar and went to lunch. He came back after lunch and told me what he ate and then proceeded to quickly calculate the carbs and total insulin dose. He then gave himself an injection, chatted some more and went to class.
Also to add, I will communicate with his father everyday to update him on the finger stick results.
Do you allow the student this amount of control or do you supervise their calculations? I just want to make sure that I am allowing him the independence but also want to understand the whole process.
Thanks in advance.
