Diabetes is affecting more and more children. Diabetes is one of the most common chronic childhood diseases. In the United States about 125,000 youth (younger than age 19) have diabetes and about 13,000 new cases are found each year. Appropriate diabetes care in the school is necessary for the child's immediate safety, long-term well being, and optimal academic performance.

There is no cure for diabetes but it can be controlled. Family support, daily care and treatment help control diabetes so that a child can lead a healthy, active, and fun-filled life. Keeping blood sugar levels in a target range means balancing insulin, food, and exercise. Food raises blood sugar levels, while insulin and exercise lower them. Children and families should work with their diabetes medical team to find a plan that is best for them.
