Introduction

Welcome to my blog!  I’m glad you found me.  Hopefully some of the tips and recommendations here will be useful to you or someone you know.

This blog is intended to provide some tips and recommendations for those part-time caregivers out there caring for children with type 1 diabetes.  The advice found here is based on my own personal experiences and those of others with type 1 diabetes or caring for someone with type 1 diabetes.  None of the information here should be taken as medical advice.  Always consult your physician (or the parent and / or physician of the child you are caring for) before carrying out anything recommended on this blog.  While I do have personal and professional diabetes experience (20 years as a type 1 myself, plus 3+ years as a nurse) and I am an aspiring CDE, every person with diabetes is different, every situation is different, and many times every day is different.  What works for me or others may not work for you or the child you are caring for, to PLEASE always seek medical advice before acting on anything posted here.
